Outstanding book detailing the sinking of the Indianapolis, the court martial that followed and the fight by the crew to get the truth out. Highly recommend for anyone that enjoys learning more about military history, particularly WWII.

Meticulously written and on the verge of TMI. The author(s) uncovered and revealed intricate details on this huge piece of hidden history with the Indianapolis' involvement in delivering the atomic bomb and to its sinking and further controversy and political deception. The portrayal of real crew members and their positions on the ship and their desperate attempt at survival in the water turn real and tragic. It's amazing how the fight to absolve the ship Captain McVay leads to present time. Whew! Quite a story.
