In Out of the Depths, retired Marine Edgar Harrell tells the story of what happened to the USS Indianapolis and its crew after the fateful attack on July 30, 1945. After successfully delivering uranium for the atomic bombs that would end World War II, their ship was struck by two Japanese torpedoes. For the next five days, survivors of the attack fought dehydration, exposure, saltwater poisoning, and shark attack. Readers will be astounded by Harrell's courage, ingenuity and faith that helped keep him alive after the worst naval disaster in U.S. history. Slightly Imperfect.
