During World War II, as the Japanese were breaking American codes as quickly as they could be devised, a small group of Navajo Indian Marines provided their country with its only totally secure cryptogram.

Racruited from the vast reaches of the Navajo reservation in Arizona and New Mexico, from solitary and traditional lives, the young Navajo men who made up the code talkers were present at some of the Pacific Theatre's bloodiest battles.  They spoke to each other in the Navajo language, relaying vital information between the fron lines and headquarters.  their contribution was immeasurable, their bravery unquestionable.

Seventy-five of the surviving Navajo code talkers are included in this book, their faces testaments to long and valiant lives.
