Publisher's Summary

In 1945 the U.S.S. Indianapolis was torpedoed in the South Pacific. Nearly 900 men ended up in the water, but after four days fighting hypothermia, dehydration and sharks, only 317 crewmen survived. A talk with two of thesurvivors: Paul Murphy, Chairman of the Indianapolis Survivors Organization, and Harold Bray. Their story was told in the 1958 book Abandon Ship! The Saga of the U.S.S. Indianapolis, the Navy's Greatest Sea Disaster byRichard Newcomb, which has just been republished. The captain of the ship was court-martialed for failure to practice evasive maneuvers in enemy waters. Last month the Navy exonerated the Captain. Next week August 16-19, theSurvivors Organization will hold their 12th reunion in Indianapolis, Indiana. (Original Broadcast Date: April 23, 2001)
