A very nice copy. 1973 Trade Paperback. xii, 170 pp. An intriguing account of a select platoon of Marines known as the Navajo Code Talkers, the subject of the upcoming John Woo / Nicholas Cage movie 'Windtalkers.'

The Navajo Code Talkers is the single most comprehensive account of the contribution of the Navajo native Americans in World War II. It's authentic photos and illustrations have been featured on CBS Television's An American Portrait series, and the book itself has been profiled on the ABC Nightly News.
