Nearly three-quarters of a century following the reprehensible cover-up of the worst US naval disaster at sea emerges an unparalleled account of survival from the sinking of the USS Indianapolis CA-35. But this time, it's not the story of the ship that went under or of the innocent captain blackballed by fellow brass; instead, it's the inspiring true story of a young sailor's unsinkable faith in God to do the impossible despite the inevitable.
Introducing Indy navigator Robert "Bob" P. Gause, QM1, the survivor who discovered the gruesome half-eaten sailor described by Captain Quint in the original movie Jaws. In this riveting biography, Gause chronicles the details of his days adrift as a survivor of one of the most chilling sagas born out of the greatest generation.
Torpedoed in the dead of night by a Japanese submarine, the crew of the Indy is forced to abandon ship. Over the next three days, their situation rapidly deteriorates as mayhem sets in. By day four, death and deliria have consumed most of the crew. Dependent upon spent life jackets that are threatening to take them under, Bob and the dwindling group of survivors realize their hours are numbered. If help doesn't find them soon, there won't be anyone left to tell of their unimaginable plight in the deep.
More than an incomprehensible tale of hope, Bob's memoirs from the Indy amass a story so unfathomably true-you'll swear its fiction. Unsinkable; it's what you become when ending up on the bottom of the ocean is not an option
