Navajo Code Talker Manual
WINNER OF THE SILVER MEDAL FOR BEST REGIONAL NONFICTION (WEST-MOUNTAIN) IN THE 2020 INDEPENDENT PUBLISHERS BOOK AWARDS!
FROM NAVAJO MEN in service to their country came an extraordinary weapon in the Pacific Arena of World War II. Twenty-nine Navajo Marines were recruited to adapt their language into a code so secret and difficult that the Germans and Japanese could never break it. The code grew, and so did the numbers of Code Talkers, forever altering the course of the war and American history.
This unique, interactive book includes a brief history of the Navajo Code Talkers, a lesson on learning and using the code, and a four-page foldout of the original Code Talker dictionary.
