On 30 July 1945 the USS INDIANAPOLIS was torpedoed in the South Pacific by a Japanese submarine. Of a crew of 1196 men an estimated 300 were killed upon impact and nearly 900 sailors were cast into the Pacific Ocean. They remained there, undetected by the Navy, for nearly five days, battered by a savage sea. They struggled to stay alive, fighting off sharks, hypothermia and dementia. By the time rescue arrived, all but 321 men had died. Doug Stanton has brought this incredible human drama to life in a narrative that is at once immediate and timeless.
