Annotation During World War II, nearly 4,000 Navajo Indians answered the call to serve in the U.S. military, despite the legacy of Native American genocide. Perhaps their most important contribution to the war effort was the development and use of a special code by a select corps of marines known as the code talkers. The unbreakable communications code was based on the Navajo language, and proved invaluable in the Pacific theater. For grades 6-9 and older readers.
