In Harm’s Way: The Sinking of the USS Indianapolis & the Extraordinary Story of its Survivors
Doug Stanton. On July 30, 1945, after completing a top secret mission to deliver parts of the atom bomb “Little Boy,” which would be dropped on Hiroshima, the battle cruiser USS Indianapolis was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine. An estimated 300 men were killed upon impact; close to 900 sailors were cast into the Pacific Ocean, where they remained, undetected by the Navy, for nearly 5 days. Battered by a savage sea, they struggled to survive, fighting off hypothermia, sharks, physical & mental exhaustion. By the time rescue arrived, all but 321 men had lost their lives. This book relates the tragedy of the ship not as a history of war, but as a portrait of men battling the sea. “Here is the definitive account of a little-known chapter in World War II history.” Photos.
