Brief and valuable !

EXCELLENT short (38pp) account ofthe who, what, why and how of the Codetalkers. Good solid start on this topic; I plan to share excerpts with my 4th graders.

book or Article

I was surprised to see that the "book" was only 38 pages. subject was only partially covered and didn't satisfy. Big ripoff. Shame on B&N for charging for this "bbok"

    Interesting Background of the Code Talkers

    This book is a very quick read that gives an overview of the role the Navajo Code Talkers played during the war. It is interesting and informative, but you will need to look elsewhere if you are looking for a history and/or in-depth stories of the code talkers. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and highly recommend it to anyone.

    Great History

    If you love history, Native American history, WW II history, this is the book for you. So thankful that someone got it written down before that generation is gone.

    Superficial

    Poor attempt at telling a story. Not worth the time or trouble. Sorry, but I call 'em as I read them

    Basic Overview

    If you're really looking to get into the subject or read a lot of detail, this book isn't for you. It's a very brief synopsis that lacks any real depth. It actually reminded me more of a report than a book. If you want a very basic idea of the subject then by all means, read this. If you want to get into the subject and find the full story, then look elsewhere.
