Fatal Voyage: The Sinking of the USS Indianapol...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Shortly after midnight on July 30, 1945, the navy cruiser USS Indianapolis was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine in the Philippine Sea. The ship had just left the island of Tinian, delivering components of the atomic bomb destined for Hiroshima. As the torpedoes hit, the Indianapolis erupted into a fiery coffin, sinking in less than 15 minutes and leaving 900 crewmen fighting for life in shark-infested waters. They expected a swift, routine rescue, unaware that the navy high command didn't even realize that the Indianapolis was missing. Help would not arrive for another five days. Drawn from definitive interviews with key figures, Fatal Voyage recounts the horrific events endured as the number of water-treading survivors dwindled to just 316. Each gruesome day brought more madness and slow death from explosion-related injuries, dehydration, and, most terrifying of all, shark attacks. But the pain did not end when the men finally returned home: The Indianapolis's commander, Captain Charles B. McVay III, was court-martialed for causing the clearly unavoidable disaster. With a new afterword chronicling the 55-year campaign by Indianapolis survivors and their supporters to win public vindication for Captain McVay, this classic is restored, along with memories of the Indianapolis crew. 1.

It's June - winter in South Africa, and Martine and her grandmother are enjoying a cold but beautiful walk along the beach when they find a stranded, dying dolphin. Martine uses her gift of healing to help it back to the ocean, but it's only the latest in a series of inexplicable beachings of dolphins and whales - and the start of a brand new adventure for Martine. After a last stolen midnight ride on her beloved white giraffe, Jemmy, Martine's class is off on an amazing school trip to the islands of Mozambique to witness the legendary "sardine run". It's a trip that goes drastically wrong, and Martine, with close friend Ben, finds herself swimming in shark-infested waters, marooned on an uninhabited island, and suddenly at the centre of mysterious submarine goings-on as she tries to save a pod of 100 dolphins from certain death. 1.

Out of the Depths: An Unforgettable WWII Story ...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

July 30, 1945 - The USS Indianapolis and its 1,196-man crew is making its way toward a small island in the South Pacific. The ship is sailing unescorted, assured by headquarters the waters are safe. It is midnight, and Marine Edgar Harrell and several others have sacked out on deck rather than spend the night in their hot and muggy quarters below. Fresh off a top-secret mission to deliver uranium for the atomic bombs that would ultimately end World War II, they are unaware their ship is being watched. Minutes later, six torpedoes are slicing toward the Indy. For five horrifying days and nights after their ship went down, Harrell and his shipmates had to fend for themselves in the open seas. Plagued by dehydration, exposure, saltwater poisoning, and shark attacks, their numbers were cruelly depleted before they were miraculously rescued. This is one man's story of courage, ingenuity, and faith in God's providence in the midst of the worst naval disaster in US history. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Eric Martin.

Penguin presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of F--k You, 2016 by Bob A. N. Grypants, read by Bob A.N. Grypants. In the year that David Bowie died, Brexit shocked us, 'Hiddleswift' was a thing and Trump trumped, we are all asking ourselves: was 2016 really the worst year ever? Find out in this special* commemorative book**. In this cathartic memento of the annus shitabulus that was 2016, you'll find a hilarious guide to everything that went wrong and the few - very few - things that actually went right. For example: How was it that politics completely jumped the shark this year? From Bowie to Prince, Ali to Cohen, we celebrate the many extraordinary artists who died rather than see Trump become president. (Did Castro make it into the book? Close, but no cigar.) Compare 2016 with other terrible years in history - is it really the very worst? Make sense of manbuns, Pokemon Go, Hygge, Nigel Farage and other nonsense. With the aid of an electron microscope, we hunt for something good that actually happened. Feel relieved about all the bad things that didn't occur - yet (there's always 2017, folks!). This comic compendium will soothe your troubled soul - before you throw it in the bin and prepare your mightily hungover self to face 2017. It has to be better, right? *I.e., hastily put together. ** Warning: this book will spontaneously combust at midnight on December 31, 2016. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bob A. N. Grypants.

Midnight

Midnight is a compulsively readable legal thriller by Kevin Egan that keeps tightening the screws with every page. How long can you hide a death? The New York County Courthouse, in Lower Manhattan, has its own rules and traditions. When a judge dies, the members of his staff keep their jobs until the end of that calendar year. So when Judge Alvin Canter quietly expires in his chambers on December 31st, his loyal clerk and secretary find themselves in a difficult situation. Their jobs will vanish at closing time-unless they can conceal the judge's death until after midnight. Neither Tom Carroway nor Carol Scilingo can afford to be out of work. Tom is deeply in debt to an impatient loan shark, while Carol is a struggling single mom whose young son and aging mother depend heavily on her. And both Tom and Carol have secrets they're desperate to keep hidden. Their plan seems simple enough: make it look like the judge died at home on New Year's Day. But that's before other people get involved: a crooked union boss, a brutal mob enforcer, and Carol's suspicious ex-boyfriend. . . . Pretty soon, Tom and Carol find themselves over their heads in an increasingly dangerous conspiracy. And if they're not very careful, more than one body may be discovered in the new year. A Kirkus Reviews Best Fiction Book of 2013 At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Martine uses her gift of healing to help it back to the ocean but it's only the latest in a series of inexplicable beachings of dolphins and whales - and the start of a brand new adventure for Martine. After a last stolen midnight ride on her beloved white giraffe, Jemmy, Martine's class is off on an amazing school trip to the islands of Mozambique to witness the legendary 'Sardine Run'.

It makes her question the true nature of her gift, and what she will be called upon to do next. The incredible beauty of the flora and fauna of this little known corner of Africa is richly evoked as a result of Lauren's in depth knowledge and research of the area.
