Book and dust jacket look new. Dust in protective mylar cover. Signed by Ensign Harlan Twible one of the survivors. "On July 30, 1945, the USS 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 dementia." The definitive account of a little-known chapter in World War II history, In Harm's Way is destined to become a classic tale of war, survival, and extraordinary courage.(Review) In July 1945, Ensign Twible served as a gunnery officer on the USS Indianapolis. The ship had just delivered the atomic bomb and was sailing home when it was attacked by a Japanese submarine. Twible recounted "We were under secret orders, so nobody knew we were hit," "The bow was blown off the ship....Here I was, an Ensign, and I had to give the order to abandon ship," Rare work. ; Photographs; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 333 pages; Signed by Notable Personage, Related
