Description: Shortly after midnight on july 30 , 1945 , the navy cruiseer USS Indianapolis was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine in the Philippine Sea.
The ship had just left the island of Tinian , delivering components of the atomic bomb destined for Hiroshima.
As the torpedoes hit , the Indianaoplis erupted into a fiery coffin, sinking in less then 15 minutens and leaving 900 crewmen fighting for life in shark infested waters.
They expected a swift , routine rescue , unaware that the navy high command didn't even realize that the Indianapolis was missing.
Help would not strive for another five days .
drawn from definitive intervieuws with key figures, Fatal Voyage recounts the horrific events endured as the number of water treading survivors dwindeld to just 316.
Ech gruesome day bought more madness and slow death from explosion related injuries , dehydration , and , most terrifying of all , shark attacks.
But the pain did not end when the men finally returned home : The Indinanapolis's commander , Capitain Charles B . Mcvay II , was court martialed for causing the clearly unavoidable disaster.
With a new afterword chronicling the 55 year campaign by Indianapolis survivors and their supporters to win public vindication for Capitain McVay , this classic is restored, along with memories of the Indianapolis crew.
