When his young daughter is attacked by one of the gangsters, he joins the faction fighting against the syndicate and gets important evidence via a tape recorder.

An Olympic distance runner and World War II veteran who survived 47 days on a raft in the Pacific after his bomber crashed, then endured two years in Japanese prison camps under the worst conditions has died. His story was told in "Unbroken" which is a masterpiece of a non fiction book. The film produced by Angelina Jolie will be released in December. The book goes down as one of my all time favorite reads. Please do not miss this one.
