Resumo:

The United States is at war, and sixteen-year-old Ned Begay wants to join the cause -- especially when he hears that Navajos are being specifically recruited by the Marine Corps. So he claims he's old enough to enlist, breezes his way through boot camp, and suddenly finds himself involved in a top-secret task, one that's exclusively performed by Navajos. He has become a code talker. His experiences in the Pacific -- from Guadalcanal to Iwo Jima and beyond -- will forever change him. Throughout World War II, in the conflict fought against Japan, Navajo Code Talkers were a crucial part of the U.S. effort, sending messages back and forth in an unbreakable code that used their native language. They braved some of the heaviest fighting of the war, and with their code, they saved countless American lives. Yet their story remained classified for more than twenty years. When the war ended, they weren't able to tell anyone -- not even their families -- about their true contribution.
