Lost At Sea.
The Japanese using him.
At one point, the Japanese used Zamperini as propaganda. On the brightside being a former Olympian saved Zamperini from being killed by the, but it also singled him out for more punishment, because he was a valuable American. At one camp, they would force him to race against Japanese, and beat him with clubs if he won. Everyone in America thought Zamperini was long dead by then, until Japanese at Radio Tokyo persuaded him into reading propaganda messages on their radio. He agreed only to read a message telling his parents he was alive, and even though they were threatening to send him to punishment camps, he refused to do anything more.
