There is a great deal of debate about what the title means; are the promises broken and in need of repair, are they about to be broken, or have they been untouched but in constant threat of being broken?
We don't know.
Many scholars have discussed and lectured about the Unbroken title but have yet to come up with a solution to this, as yet, confusing puzzle.
The book details the harrowing story of Vince Davies (evidently he changed only his name to protect only himself) and his tale of love and loss on the high seas.
It sees a rouge military platoon embark on a quest to kill the Antichrist while Vince Davies, the protagonist, attempts to track down his long lost love, Miss Valerie Honeysuckle. At the beginning of the book he was forced to leave her behind in the Gulf Breeze, its eluded that this is in fact a ploy by the Antichrist, thus setting the proceeding events in motion.
The primary story details his return to the Gulf Breeze New Mexico to find his love and above all his destiny to destroy the Antichrist.
Secondary stories follow the emotional rollercoaster that his fellow AWOL soldiers go through in this almost futile adventure.
