Praise for Code Talker:

“Gripping in its narrative, Code Talker is history at its best.”—Colonel Cole C. Kingseed, U.S. Army (Ret.), co-author of Beyond Band of Brothers: The War Memoirs of Major Dick Winters

“A fascinating inside look at one of WWII’s most closely guarded secrets . . . This is an important book, a previously untold piece of our history.”—Marcus Brotherton, author of Shifty’s War

“A unique, inspiring story by a member of the Greatest Generation.”—Kirkus Reviews

“You don’t need to be a fan of World War II literature to appreciate this memoir . . . a fascinating melange of combat in the Pacific theater, the history of the Navajo people and the development of a uniquely American code.”—The Associated Press

“History books can list facts about the Navajo code talkers, but they will never be as true as Mr. Nez’s firsthand account. Code Talker is memoir at its best!”—Karen Fisher-Alaniz, author of Breaking the Code

“A remarkably affecting first-person account of the Navajo Marines who served their country with distinction through some of the worst battles of the Pacific theater.”—The Washington Times
