In Harm’s Way

The sinking of the USS Indianapolis, and the harrowing account of how its survivors fared while stranded at sea, is the subject of In Harm’s Way by Doug Stanton. It is an often terrifying look at the ordeal these men underwent, first to survive an enemy attack only to then be forced to contend against starvation, dehydration, sunstroke, and shark attack. Often heart-wrenching, but ultimately an amazing true story of the tenacity and triumph of the human spirit.
