Abstract:

The Navajo code talkers, Marines who used a top-secret code based on their language, played a vital role in winning World War II in the Pacific. The code was the only code the Japanese never cracked, and because it was so effective, it remained a secret until 1968, when it was declassified. Tells the story behind the film, Windtalkers, facts about how the code was created, historical background of the Navajo Nation, and a glimpse into the rigorous code talker training program.
