    Default Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemptio

    This is one of the most riveting books I have read in a longl long time. About a young man who ran in the 1936 olympics with his heart and mind set on the 1940 Olympics. But then WWII happened. He enlisted and ended up as a POW in Japan. Written by by the same author who wrote Seabiscuit. Laura Hildenbrand. You will not want to put this book down once started. It will make you laugh and make you cry. Just an awesome read.

    My father was there as well, which, I suppose, make the book a bit personal, thinking "This could have happend to Dad" He rarely ever talked about his time spent there.
