This is the story of a great wartime sea disaster and what really happened to the U.S.S. Indianapolis and her crew. Just 4 days after this flagship of the massive Pacific Fifth Fleet had delivered the components of the Hiroshima atomic bomb to the island of Tinian, she was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine and sank within 15 minutes. Why the Navy failed to rescue these brave sailors and why they began a massive coverup that lasted for over 30 years is the subject of this book, based upon previously unavailable files that reveal this startling conspiracy to conceal the massive blunders that were made.
