This is an important and fascinating part of WW ll history which every American should know and appreciate. It helps you understand the way Indians were treated in America, "The Land of the Free" and this incredible role they played in the war. The code was brilliant. If you grew up as I did playing cowboys and Indians this will help you to appreciate the heroes thay were during the war.
The book is written from a personal perspective making it come to life. It is totally engrossing..Japan planned to make America part of the Japanese Enpire established in the 4th century. They felt it was their destiny and were a warrior race. The whole philosophy is something I did not understand and the value they placed on human life was tied in to this belief. I am learning and understanding so much.
The Navajos who had been so mistreated and were a peaceful people were recruited for this extraordinary mission undertaken by the Marines in the Pacific and surely were responsible for our victory in the Pacific.
If I had my way, every person in our country would read this book. It takes a lot for me to recommend a book this highly.
Thank you Amazon for suggesting it.
