Unbroken Admiration

By Laura Hillenbrand


Even if it isn't Memorial Day (remembering men and women who died while serving) or Veterans Day (remembering all veterans), people almost always admire and respect war heroes. It's the least we can do for people who sacrifice so much for their country, and for causes they may or may not believe in.

In Unbroken, Louie spends a lot of his life searching for admiration, so all the accolades he receives after his miraculous survival must be rewarding indeed. 

Questions About Admiration
