Description: On July 30 , 1945, after completing a top secret mission to deliver parts of the atom bomb "Little Boy", wich would be dropped on Hiroshima, the battle cruiser USS Indianapolis was torpesdoed in the South Pacific by a Japanese submarine.
An estimated 300 men were killed upon impact , close to 900 sailors were cast into the Pacific Ocean, where they remaind , undetected by the navy , for nearly fivr days.
Batterd by a savage sea , they struggled to survive , fighting off hypothermia , sharks, physical and mental exhaustion , and , finally , hallucinatory dementia.
By the time rescue -- which was purely accidental -- arrived , all but 321 men had lost their lives : 4 more would die in military hospitals shortly thereafter.
The catain's subsequent and highly un usal court martial left many questions unanswered : How did the navy fail to realisze the Indianapolis was missing ?
Why was the cruiser traveling unescorted in enemy waters ?
And perhaps most amazing of all , how did these 317 men manage to survive ?
