Summary, etc.:
Based on new primary sources and interviews with 108 survivors, Vincent and Vladic reveal the untold stories of the crew left adrift for five days in the Philippine Sea as they battled dehydration, sharks, insanity, and each other; the Army spy who shepherded the bomb aboard Indianapolis; the hidden history of the Top Secret ULTRA program that could have saved the ship; and the survivors' fifty-year fight for justice. In this powerfully emotional account, the USS Indianapolis and its heroic crew come to full, vivid, unforgettable life.
