This is a well-written account of the way that the language of the Navajo Indians formed the basis of a code to encipher secret messages. Despite the efforts of the Germans the code proved unbreakable. The book is written by a man belonging to the Navajo Indian tribe who was in the navy and whose identity was kept secret. I give it five stars because of the unique and authentic story, and because of the quality of the writing, but I confess that it went on a little too long for me and I skipped the last part.

If you have an interest in modern warfare and the extraordinary human stories of sacrifice and tenacity of those partaking, this is a piece of history unique to sections of communications. A window on adversity and vagaries of warfare during WWII in the Southern Pacific, Focusing on the American and Japanese atoll centered violent conflict. An excellently presented view from one of the original Navajo Code Talkers.

This is an amazing story of Native American Navaho volunteers who gave their all in the second world war for the country which didn't even allow them to vote. Their astonishing feats of intelligence and memory actually changed the course of the war against Japan. I had never heard of them before. They should be celebrated by us all.

An amazing and wonderful book - an eye-opener on the treatment of native Americans, of course, by the powers that were at the time, but also a useful reminder of the ferocity of the conflict in the Pacific in WW11

A fascinating account, not only of a little-known side of WWII, but also of life as a Navajo in pre-war America
