Title:  Out of the Depths: A Survivor’s Story of the Sinking of the USS Indianapolis

From the Backcover:  “Like so many stories surrounding World War II where fact is stranger than fiction, Out of the Depths is a terrifying firsthand account of the sinking of the USS Indianapolis and the Navy cover-up that led to the bizarre courtmartial and eventual exoneration of its captain.  Marine survivor Edgar Harrell vividly describes the horrors of being plagued by sharks, hypothermia, severe dehydration and salt-water hallucinations, and the crew’s heart wrenching struggle to survive the greatest catastrophe at sea in the history of the U.S. Navy–a true riveting story of survivial, political intrigue and faith in the providence of God.”
