Navajo Code Talkers: America's Secret Weapon in World War II

Availability: In stock

By Nathan Aaseng, foreword by Roy O. Hawthorne

Nathan Aaseng's saga of unforgettable valor is a gripping chronicle of young Navajo men whose homeland was decimated and whose ancestors had been taken captive less than one hundred years prior to their becoming United States Marines. In spite of two hundred broken treaties and the attempted eradication of their language by the Federal Indian Education System, they responded to the call to arms by the United States of America. They went on to develop the only unbreakable code in military history and risked their lives to use it in hundreds of battles in the Pacific theater.
