Publisher's Description

The Inspiring Story of a World War II Hero's Miraculous Survival at Sea

July 30, 1945--The USS Indianapolis and its 1,196-man crew is making its way toward a small island in the South Pacific. The ship is sailing unescorted, assured by headquarters the waters are safe. It is midnight, and Marine Edgar Harrell and several others have sacked out on deck rather than spend the night in their hot and muggy quarters below. Fresh off a top-secret mission to deliver uranium for the atomic bombs that would ultimately end World War II, they are unaware their ship is being watched. Minutes later, six torpedoes are slicing toward the Indy . . .

For five horrifying days and nights after their ship went down, Harrell and his shipmates had to fend for themselves in the open seas. Plagued by dehydration, exposure, saltwater poisoning, and shark attacks, their numbers were cruelly depleted before they were miraculously rescued. This is one man's story of courage, ingenuity, and faith in God's providence in the midst of the worst naval disaster in U.S. history.

    Reading this true story was like riding a roller coaster! My emotions were take on a wild ride where one minute I was moved to tears by how powerful and wonderful God is to how painful and devastating the situation was for all of those on board the USS Indianapolis. Thank you Mr. Harrell for sharing your story with us. My father served in WWII and I was so proud of him and used to love to hear him tell me stories of his time in the US Army. More Americans need to read this so that they can appreciate all our service men and women do for us and to show how God still moves in miraculous ways when called upon by his children.

    My husband, a retired minister, read this book first, and said it was one of the best he's ever read. We immediately ordered more for gifts!

    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.
