Louis Zamperini

Louis Zamperini was one of America's greatest heroes. An Olympic runner and WWII POW, his life story was written by Pulitzer Prize winning author, Laura Hillenbrand (author of "Seabiscuit") and the book "Unbroken", released in November, 2010.

Lucky Louis Zamperini, Olympic hero, WWII bombardier, plane crash survivor, POW, and survivor of post-war turmoil was one of the last of the greatest generations.

Louis' son Luke can join your group to tell the story of his father’s amazing life: his challenges, his obstacles, his will to live, and the people who helped him along the way.

Louis was blessed with not only an extraordinary personal will to succeed and an amazing gift of athleticism and talent, but with the power to find it within himself to forgive. The story of how Louis Zamperini, as told by Luke Zamperini, was able to ultimately triumph over those who subjected him to his darkest hours is a tale you will never forget.
