At the 1936 Berlin Olympics, Louis Zamperini won a personal meeting with Adolf Hitler, who complimented his fast finish. In 1941, Zamperini enlisted in the United States Air Force. He was deployed to the Pacific, where his plane received heavy damage during combat. He was assigned to another aircraft and told to search for missing crews, but the plane crashed in May, 1943 due to a mechanical failure. Most of the men died during the crash, but Zamperini survived for 47 days on a raft before being captured.
Zamperini spent the rest of the war in Japanese internment camps. His abductors' brutality drove him to the limits of endurance, but his hope and tenacity saw him through, and set him on the road to a life-changing encounter with God. The triumphant tale of a true American hero!
