Devil at My Heels : A Heroic Olympian's Astonishing Story of Survival as a Japanese POW in World War II

Athletically gifted, Louis Zamperini propelled himself from the tough streets of Southern California to the 1936 Berlin Olympics, and to an NCAA mile record at USC that stood for 20 years. When war came he left the track for a B24 - a move that would have heartbreaking consequences. On a routine mission, his plane crashed into the shark-infested Pacific where he would drift 2000 miles for 47 days before being found by the Japanese. As a prisoner of war, Zamperini endured almost three years of horrible torture and humiliation at the hands of a psychopathic guard nicknamed "the Bird". Yet Zamperini endured and returned home a hero. Unfortunately, the terrible memory of his experiences haunted him. Zamperini turned to alcohol and spiralled into the depths of despair until a young preacher named Billy Graham helped him rediscover the faith that would lead him to return to Japan and forgive his now-imprisoned captors. Moving and unforgettable, terrifying and inspirational, Devil At My Hells is not to be missed.
