Amid the shelling and slaughter of World War II, heroes of virtually every race and creed emerged to answer the American call to sacrifice for the preservation of freedom. Among the most vital, unique, and patriotic of these people – and perhaps the least heralded – were the members of the Navajo Indian Tribe, the “first Americans,” who rallied together in a valiant defense of their common nation.

The critically acclaimed book The Navajo Code Talkers by Doris A. Paul remains the single most comprehensive account of the contribution of the Navajo Americans during World War II.
The Navajo Code Talkers presents the story of this crucial element of the American war effort in a well-organized, thoroughly researched manner which abounds with excitement, national pride, and poignant humor. This moving and inspirational work is generously illustrated with photographs of the men in action in the South Pacific and substantiated by excerpts from official documents, correspondence with the officers who worked with the Navajos, and personal interviews with the code talkers.
