Code Talker: The First and Only Memoir By One of the Original Navajo Code Talkers of WWII
Code Talker is the only memoir written by one of the original Navajo code talkers of World War II. As a child Chester Nez was punished in school for speaking his native language-a language that would become vital to the success of the United States in World War II. When the Marines turned to its Navajo recruits to develop and implement a secret military language, the Navajo created the only code to remain unbroken in modern warfare. The code helped insure victory over Japan in the South Pacific. 320 pages.
