In a cruel irony, the Indianapolis was itself sunk by the Japanese as it returned from the top-secret mission. The dramatic and tragic end of the ship and the fate of the one thousand two hundred crew members, led by Captain Charles McVay, was the worst disaster in the history of the United States Navy. On 30 th July 1945, succumbing to a battery of Japanese torpedoes, the Indianapolis went under in less than fifteen minutes, taking four hundred men down with her. For four long days, Captain McVay and the other eight hundred survivors drifted in the waters of the Pacific, facing death from dehydration, sunstroke, hypothermia, salt poisoning, a deadly slick of oil from their own boat and sharks.
