In Harm's Way: The Sinking of the USS Indianapolis and the Extraordinary Story of Its Survivors
"On July 26, 1945, the heavy cruiser Indianapolis steamed into port at the Pacific island of Tinian, carrying a cargo that would end World War II: the uranium that would be dropped on Hiroshima just three weeks later ... On the night of July 29 ... the submarine I-58 sank the American ship, killing nearly 900 sailors in the explosion and its terrible aftermath." (2001)
