Abstract:

During the brutal fighting of the World War II in the Pacific Theater, the U.S. Intelligence services desperately seek a fool-proof encryption code. A code immune to the code breakers of the Japanese. The solution is the ancient language of the Navajo. Enlisted into the Marine Corps are several 'Windtalkers' who are deployed to front lines of the Pacific, to use their language as an impossible-to-crack secret code. A drawback, however, is that the U.S. military soon puts forth a directive that the Windtalkers must never be captured alive by the enemy, so additional Marines are assigned to make certain that this directive is carried out to the letter.
