But his success was a surprise to the racing establishment, which had written off the crooked-legged racehorse with the sad tail.

    En eftermiddag i maj 1943 styrtede et amerikansk bombefly ned i Stillehavet og forsvandt. Flyets bombeoperatør, Louis Zamperini, fik sig bjærget op på en redningsflåde.

Det blev som bekendt aldrig til noget, og det blev som krigsfange, at Louis kom til Japan.
