VOTED #1 HISTORY BOOK OF 2018 BY AMAZON.COM EDITORS

For the first time, thanks to years of original research and new reporting, two acclaimed authors deliver the riveting and emotionally wrenching full story of the worst sea disaster in United States naval history: the sinking of the USS Indianapolis during World War II—and the fifty-year fight to exonerate the captain after a wrongful court martial.

Based on new primary sources and interviews with 107 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—unfolding against the larger war and the historic actions of titans of the era—the USS Indianapolis and its heroic crew come to full, vivid, unforgettable life.
