The Navajo Code Talkers

The Navajo Code Talkers by J. Patrick Lewis and Gary Kelley is a fascinating look at a little-known but critical part of American history that took place during the pivotal WWII battles fought in the Pacific. The Navajo language was complex and unwritten, which meant it could become an unbreakable wartime code. Bilingual Navajos, called code talkers, became integral to the war effort and were critical in turning the tide in the Pacific. The book goes into detail on aspects of the code, the history of the Navajos, and is enhanced by stunning artwork. (Non-Fiction)
