Navajo Code Talkers
During World War II, the U.S. military found themselves searching for a form of communication that could not be deciphered by the enemy. Their solution was nothing short of brilliant. They enlisted the aid of native speakers of Navajo and developed an elaborate code based on the Navajo language. Unlike other secret codes that could easily be broken, the Navajo people spoke a difficult language that very few outsiders understood. Read all about the Code Talkers, the code that could not be decrypted by the enemy, and how that code helped win the war, with the Navajo Code Talkers graphic novel.

My son loves everything about codes and secret codes. This was definitely a hit with him. He’s in 7th grade.
My 15 year old daughter will love this book. She has not learned about the Navajo Code Talkers yet, but I am sure she will be interested. Thank you for offering it as a free gift.
