Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience and Redemption - Laura Hillenbrand - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book Unbroken:

An athlete's survival through WWII and the Pacific Ocean.

My favorite Laura Hillenbrand quote from the book:

"The paradox of vengefulness is that it makes men dependent upon those who have harmed them, believing that their release from pain will come only when their tormentors suffer."

Questions I pondered while reading Unbroken:

Why does cruelty come so easily?

Why is forgiveness so hard?

My thoughts about Unbroken:

WWII was just bad.

Where was everyone's compassion?

Take a moment to remember all the veterans of WWII.
