Book Signing: Doug Stanton with "In Harm's Way" (REVISED EDITION)
Doug Staton will be in person signing copies of his updated and revised edition of his title In Harm's Way. Originally published in 2002, this edition of In Harm's Way has a new chapter added.
On July 30, 1945, the U.S.S. Indianapolis was torpedoed in the South Pacific by a Japanese submarine. An estimated 300 men were killed upon impact; close to 900 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?
