While much of the book is based on out­stand­ing research and first-person inter­views, some of the book is told from a per­spec­tive which the author him­self wrote but relied on his­tor­i­cal infor­ma­tion for ref­er­ence. A most inter­est­ing way to write the book and a brave deci­sion by the author (who states his method in the forward).

While their game might not be as flaw­less as the Ger­mans, they have the weight of the con­ti­nent on them not to let a Euro­pean team win, for the first time, in South America.

Unbroken Trailer

A few years ago I read a won­der­ful book called Unbro­ken by Laura Hil­len­brand I highly rec­om­mend the book to everyone.

White did not under­es­ti­mate his young audi­ence, in fact he told the Paris review that “You have to write up, not down. Chil­dren are demand­ing. They are the most atten­tive, curi­ous, eager, obser­vant, sen­si­tive, quick, and gen­er­ally con­ge­nial read­ers on earth.”
