Survivors of the USS Indianapolis are shown on Guam in August 1945. The survivors of the sinking of the Indianapolis on July 30, 1945, drifted aimlessly for nearly five days, battling thirst, exposure and ravenous sharks. Only 321 of the 1,196 crewmen were alive when the Navy, which hadn't realized the Indianapolis was missing, finally rescued them.
