IN HARM'S WAY: The Sinking of the USS Indianapolis And The Extraordinary Story Of Its Survivors. Harrowing, adrenaline-charged account of America's worst naval disaster at sea when the Indianapolis was sunk by a Japanese sub.

Click to Enlarge by Doug Stanton. A new (2001) book that adds new light and poses new questions about the tragic sinking of the cruiser Indianapolis in the closing days of WWII. In Harm's Way relates the tragedy of the ship not as a history of war but as a portrait of men battling the sea. Interweaving the stories of three survivors -- Charles Butler McVay, the captain; Lewis Haynes, the ship's doctor; and Private Giles McCoy, a young marine -- the author has brought this astonishing human drama to life in a narrative that is at once immediate and timeless. The definitive account of a little-known chapter in World War II history, In Harm's Way is destined to become a classic tale of war, survival, and extraordinary courage. Hardcover. B/w photos. 333 pages. Includes a list of the entire crew on the day of the sinking.
