Out of the Depths by Edgar Harrell {Book Review}

Out of the Depths: An Unforgettable WWII Story of Survival, Courage, and the Sinking of the USS Indianapolis is an autobiography of Edgar Harrell's experiences while in the Marines.

If you know much about me, I am so far from a history buff. Even choosing to read this book was a stretch for me. I enjoyed the personal experience that Edgar was able to add to this time period of history. There was not a huge time period covered in the book which helped me to be able to follow along. 

One cool thing about the USS Indianapolis was that they transported supplies to make the atomic bomb.

The crazy part of this story starts when the USS Indianapolis was stuck by a Japanese sub. The ship did not take long to go down. The adventure just begins at this point. 

Obviously, we know the ending of the story since it is an autobiography, but how Edgar makes it out is quite interesting.

This book helped get me through my 3 hour glucose test.

Thanks to Bethany House for allowing me to read this book for an honest review.
