Navajo Code Talker Manual

Item Id: 6971

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. Inspired by authentic WWII Marine field manuals. Vertical binding and kraft paper used to simulate historical feel. (Hardcover 7.5" X 11")
