A young readers edition of Doug Stanton and Michael Tougias’s New York Times bestseller In Harm’s Way―a riveting World War II account of the greatest maritime disaster in US naval history

On July 30, 1945, the USS Indianapolis was torpedoed in the South Pacific by a Japanese submarine. An estimated three hundred men were killed upon impact; close to nine hundred sailors were cast into the Pacific Ocean, where they remained undetected by the navy for nearly four days and nights. Battered by a savage sea, they struggled to stay alive, fighting off sharks, hypothermia, and hallucinations.

By the time rescue arrived, all but 316 men had died. The captain’s subsequent court-martial left many questions unanswered: How did the navy fail to realize the Indianapolis was missing? And how did these 316 men manage to survive against all odds?

This thrilling wartime account of heroism and survival, Book five in the True Rescue narrative nonfiction series, is inspiring and unforgettable―the perfect choice for young adventure-seekers.
