"On July 29, 1945, four days after delivering the atomic bomb destined for Hiroshima, the U.S.S. Indianapolis was torpedoed and sunk. of the 1,199 men on board, 883 perished. Culled from previously unavailable files, this is the chilling story of how the U. S. Navy left the crew in shark-infested waters for four days, and why only a fraction of the 800 men who safely abandoned the ship survived the ordeal. This is the true story of the massive thirty-year cover-up that followed."-- Provided by publisher

very well written, it was amazing what the sailors went through to survive. It also went into good detail on all that the U.S. Navy did to shift the blame from themselves to wrongfully pin it on the captain.
