Omtale: In harm's way
On 30 July 1945 the USS Indianapolis was steaming through the South Pacific, on her way home having delivered the bomb that was to decimate Hiroshima seven days later, when she was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine. Of a crew of 1196 men an estimated 300 were killed upon impact, the remaining 900 sailors went into the sea. Undetected for five days, they struggled to stay alive, fighting off sharks, hypothermia and dementia. By the time rescue arrived, only 317 men were left alive. Interweaving the stories of some of these survivors, Doug Stanton brings this incredible human drama to life. With index.
