I have just finished reading Mr. Zamperini's extraordinary story of survival against the harshest of conditions, the brutalities of war and the battles with his darkest demons. The word "amazing" doesn't quite cover the events of this man's life. I can't even imagine the strength of will and soul to endure and, eventually, exit from the dungeons of nightmares and hate with such a forgiving heart. Long may his tale be told, and his legend remain. RIP, Mr Zamperini.

To have endured suffering as he and so many war veterans suffered is so sad. One day God will eliminate all war and suffering. To the family and friends you have my deepest sympathy. May Mr. Zamperini finally sleep in peace.

Words can not express my gratitude for your service to our country and all you had to put up with in your captivity. May you rest in peace my friend.

Those who served during WWII are called "The Greatest Generation" for a reason. Don't know why it has taken so long to have these stories told. How many more stories have yet to be told? The USA and the entire free world owes ALL veterans our deep gratitude for their brave and honorable service. That goes for those who survived and those who died in ALL wars for our freedom.
Deepest sympathy to his family. May you feel God's comfort until the day you see him again in the eternal Heaven.

My sincere condolences to the family of Louis Zamperini. As those of his generation pass on I am becoming more aware of what a huge impact WWII left on history. I had four uncles serving our country in different parts of the world and used to be amazed at family gatherings how much the war meant to my grandparents and their children.
Now 69 years since the end of the war, and my having just finished the book "Unbroken", I am gaining some better insight. God bless that generation for doing what they had to do to save civilization itself. Thank you Mr. Zamperini for your sacrifices and for your great example.

My condolences go out to the Zamperini family. Your Father and Grandfather was a true american hero. My Father met Louis at the pre Olympic trials in 1936 in Los Angeles. He thought the world of your Dad, and took me to meet him several times in the late 1970's at Hollywood Presbyterian Church, and I can tell you it was a great honor for me. It was so evident that he was a man of great character. My Dad passed away in 2012 at age 97, but not without reading "Unbroken" which he loved. I look forward to seeing your Dad's story on the screen in December.
I send you my deepest condolences,

God bless Mr. Zamperini's family. We all morn the loss of another true hero and great humanitarian. I feel for you as I also lost my father 20 months ago (he would be 92 today). My father also was a POW of the Japanese for 3 1/2 years, MIA for 2 1/2 years (they would not tell the US who was captured) and part of the Bataan Death March. Although he was not as visible as Mr.Zamperini, he also forgave his captures for torturing and murdering his friends at arms in the death camps and was a deacon in his church. God rest Mr.Zamperini's soul. God kept both of these men safe to tell their stories. Mr. Zamerini is an example to all of us of heroism and forgiveness. God bless his family and keep them safe. Sincerely, Nancy Brian, Savannah, GA.
