    I had heard part of the story on the radio, so had to get the book to read the whole story. I recommend this to everyone.

    I have not personally read this book yet. I gave it to my father and 2 of his friends for Christmas. All 3 of them said they read it straight through, unable to put it down. My father is a WWII veteran.

    Out of the Depths by Edgar Harrell is the true story of the heroic and courageous men of the USS Indianapolis that was torpedoed by the Japanese during WWII. Out of the 1,196 man crew ultimately only 317 total survived. The ship was hit July 1945 and sank almost immediately. The captain sent orders to abandon ship. Mr. Harrell along with others found themselves in the cold, dark, oily, shark infested ocean waters with only a life vest to keep them afloat. For four long days and nights they clung to life waiting for rescue. It wasn't until the fifth day that they were found. Nine hundred men survived the attack and landed in the water but only three hundred seventeen survived the ordeal of waiting for rescue. Some were eaten by sharks. Others could not survive their injuries and many just couldn't hold out and gave up. Much speculation and blame has been tossed about as to why the ship wasn't missed and search parties sent out. The captain was even wrongly put on trial trying to place the blame at his feet. He was later exonerated of the charges. The things these men endured while waiting for rescue was really hard to realize. Mr. Harrell and many of the others clung to their faith and prayed and quoted scripture. Some of the things that happened during their ordeal could only be attributed to God answering their prayers even if it was in the form of a crate of semi-rotten potatoes among other things. A quote of Mr. Harrell's that really stuck with me was that he said he was brought out of the depths of the ocean but more importantly he was brought out of the depths of his sin and rescued by the blood of Christ. My father-in-law served in the US Navy during WWII, so I'm always interested in anything having to do with that period of time.

    Out of the Depths is a true story of one Marine's experience on the USS Indianapolis. Edgar Harrell was a Marine stationed on the USS Indianapolis when tragedy struck the vessel. The unfolding and horrific experience is told with such raw honesty and peace. As I read Mr. Harrell's account of the events that unfolded, I could tell that this is a man of great faith and a true believer. He held on firmly to his faith during a time of death, chaos, anguish, and uncertainty. Mr. Harrell wrote so honestly that I found myself becoming emotional at some of the experiences he and comrades went through. For me this is an unforgettable read. Mr. Harrell is a man of true faith and is a great example of this. His story is a testament to the Lord's faithfulness and love.

    I would recommend this book to everyone. Maybe history fans might like this more but I do think that everyone should read Mr. Harrell's courageous and faithful story; I believe that all who do will be greatly affected by it. He is a great example of living a faith-filled life.
