The Defiant Ones
Louis Zamperini,1936 Olympian, bombardier on a B-24 during WWII. He was shot down and was one of only three members of an 11-man crew to survive a crash into the ocean. He survived 47 days in open water, only to be captured by the Japanese and placed in a prisioner of war camp for two tortuous years. He was beaten, starved and denied medical care for serious health conditions, and singled out by the camp's most sadistic guard. His defiant nature helped him survive. "Unbroken" is his story.
