Publisher's Summary

In May 1942, Admiral Jack Fletcher's Task Force 17 closed in for the war's first major clash with the Japanese Navy. The Neosho, a vitally important tanker, was escorted by a destroyer, the Sims. The ships were attacked by Japanese dive bombers, and when the smoke cleared, the Sims had slipped beneath the waves. Scores of sailors were killed or wounded while hundreds bobbed in shark-infested waters. It was the beginning of a hellish four-day ordeal as the crew struggled to stay alive and keep their ship afloat, while almost 200 men in life rafts drifted away without water, food, or shelter. Only four of them would survive to be rescued after nine days.
A tale of a ship as tough and resilient as its crew, The Ship That Wouldn't Die captures the indomitable spirit of the American sailor - and finally brings to the surface one of the great untold sagas of the Pacific War.
