I think this book should silence any racists against the Navajos. Evan after their people had been betrayed by our country they still flocked to join the army after the outbreak of WWII. Overcoming religious taboos such as avoidance of dead bodies, and also overcoming great prejudice, they did their counrty a great favor, and undoubtedly saved thousands of lives. They, out of all the marines, took the greatest risk because they could easily be mistaken for Jappanese. I give this book five stars.

The Navajo Code Talkers are a group of American Indians who have sadly been almost totally forgotten by the rest of the US. This short book is a good description of how the code talkers started, their successes, and the regrettable failure of the US government to remember them appropriately. The text might be a little difficult for children under the age of 9, but it is a worthwhile addition to anybody's understanding of US history.
