I made this video for educational reasons. This video tells the TRUE story of the U.S.S. Indianapolis, On 30 July 1945, shortly AFTER delivering critical parts for the first atomic bomb to be used in combat to the United States air base at Tinian, the ship was torpedoed by the Imperial Japanese Navy submarine I-58, sinking in 14 minutes. Of 1,196 crew aboard, approximately 300 went down with the ship. The remaining crew of 800 faced exposure, dehydration and shark attacks as they waited for assistance while floating with few lifeboats and almost no food or water.

I would like to Thank MGM for the use of their Audiovisual content and I would like to thank NBC Universal for the use of their Audiovisual content.
