Louis Zamperini

Hello

Louis Zamperini, the World War II veteran, 1936 Olympic long-distance runner and Christian inspirational speaker passed away of pneumonia at Los Angeles on 2 July 2014. He was the subject of the biographical book Unbroken and film by the same name slated for release on 25 December 2014. May he rest in peace.

Horrido!

Leo

The book "Unbroken" was interesting and impressive read. Hopefully the film adaptation is OK.
