Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The American offensive in the Pacific during World War II (was) hampered by the Japanese ability to crack the most secret U.S. Codes. Navajo was virtually unknown outside the reservations, ... and (their) code proved uncrackable. Kenji Kawano's striking photographs capture the quiet dignity of the surviving veterans as they recall their actions --Los Angeles Times

Book News Annotation:

Black-and-white photographic portraits of 75 survivors from the Navajo radio operators whose native tongue proved an unbreakable code to the Japanese during World War II. The introduction includes a few photographs from the period.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

During World War II, as the Japanese were breaking American codes as quickly as they could be devised, a small group of Navajo Marines provided their country with its only totally secure cryptography. The photographer has recorded them as they are today, recalling their youth.

Synopsis:

Surviving Navajo WWII veterans recall their war efforts; photos
