Publisher's Description

A WWII Hero's Miraculous Survival at Sea

July 30, 1945: After transporting uranium for the atomic bomb that would soon be dropped on Hiroshima, the USS Indianapolis headed unaccompanied toward a small island in the South Pacific. At 12:14 a.m., she was struck by two Japanese torpedoes, rolled over, and sank.

    I picked up this book because I love WW II history and since this book told the story of the USS Indianapolis I was attracted to it right off. I began reading it and as the saying goes "I couldn't hardly put it down." I kept wanting to see what happened next. Edgar Harrell, the author, along with his son David, is now 92 years old and his story is gripping and is a great testimony to God's provision and blessing for someone who trusted God for his survival. I was so impressed by this book that I decided to actually see if I could meet the author which I had the honor of doing. He is a fine Christian man who still vividly remembers so much of this amazing story. I would recommend this book to anyone who needs some inspiration and encouragement of seeing just how amazing God can bring rescue to those who need it. This is a great book!
