USS Indianapolis: The Final Chapter

Preview | 30s

In the waning days of WWII, the cruiser USS Indianapolis has just delivered the atomic bomb destined for Hiroshima - and sails off to join the Allied invasion force. Just after midnight on July 30, 1945, she is torpedoed by a Japanese sub in the Philippine Sea. She sinks within minutes, taking 300 of her crew down with her. The 900 survivors drift for four and a half days.
