I came to this book after watching the pretty poor Hollywood interpretation of this WW2 horrific sinking. The film focuses on the horrifying shark attacks and not on the effects of relentless sun and drinking seawater on rapidly dehydrating sailors stuck for days in the ocean as also occurred.
There was the failure to recognise the US Indianapolis was missing and the shameful Court Martial of the Captain.
A great read and production that filled in the gaps of the movie. Interesting and easy to listen to.
Incredible. This story of to Captain McViegh and USS Indianapolis has strong similarities to what happened to the Captain's of HMAS Melbourne and the court marshals regarding Melboures involvement in the sinkings of U.S.S. Frank E Evans and H.M.A.S VOYAGER.
