1 Dan Kurzman Fatal Voyage: The Sinking of the Uss Indianapolis
Atheneum September 1990 0689120079 / 9780689120077 First Edition 
Hardcover Used - Very Good Fine Appears unread, crisp, clean, bright and tight. Filled with illustrations in black and white. First Edition, First printing. Now protected with Durafold unattached to jacket. The True Story of the Navy's Greatest Sea Disaster. A World War II Scandal That Still Haunts the Pentagon.' The USS Indianapolis had delivered to the Island of Tinian the vital parts of the atomic bomb that would destroy Hiroshima, and was headed for the Philippines, when on the night of June 30, 1945, it was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine. Only three hundred sixteen of the original twelve hundred men survived, partly because of shark attacks, partly because of five days spent under the killing sun, but also partly because beaucratic snafus prevented the Navy from even being aware that the ship was missing. The Navy desperately needed a scapegoat to take the blame for the worst sea disaster in American naval history, and he was found in the person of Captain McVay, the first American captain ever brought to trial for losing his ship in battle. The author states that the trial was primarily a public relations gesture, and that the mismanagement of the incident haunts the Pentagon to this day. 1.30
