This book should be required reading, it is a classic!,
This review is from: Devil at My Heels: A WW II Hero's Epic Saga of Torment, Survival, and Forgiveness (Hardcover)
I hope that Louis Zamperini's story becomes required reading for our children one day. This man's amazing story of survival against all odds during WWII is truly miraculous. To describe Louie as merely "lucky" misses the mark somehow. He should have died many times over before and during the war, but through God's grace and Zamperini's formidable willpower he survived to tell his story. And what an incredible, page-turning saga it is! I couldn't put this book down and after reading it, I was a changed woman. I had a new respect for my grandfather, and the men of his generation who suffered unimaginable horrors on the battlefields of Europe and Japan during the 1940's.

Ms Washington tells the truth. This book is a "page turner" and a life changer. You will never be the same after reading this gripping saga.

I knew and taught with the pilot of that B-24 Al Phillips. 12 years after he and wife Ceci told me about the story and then the book I was able to obtain the book through the Colo. Spgs., Library (out of print at the time) from N.Dakota State Univ. Library. It was a
tremendous read and very inspiring. Al didn't like to talk about the experience but his and wife Ceci's story is also incredible. I will obtain the book and read it again! Cliff Johnson - Colorado
