Laura Hillenbrand's historical research is what makes this book so fascinating. That and her ability to reach back for the sensational story that has been long since forgotten and then resurrecting it, not just to match the information revealed when the story was news - but digging and digging and looking at it from different angles and asking others who saw it from a completely different angle and only then writing it with clarity and intelligence and respect for all all mentioned. She did that with the story of Seabiscuit and she does it with the unbelievable story of Louis Zamperini. Absolutely one to put on your to read list - and a perfect father's day gift for any WWII vet in your family.
