this is a novel about the Navajo marines of world war two. they had a very secret job to talk in navajo to send code messages to soldiers around the world that are fighting war. the acts of world war one made the Japanese study study English and Cherokee so the marines have to use navajo language so that the Japanese cant decode their messages. the story follows ned begay as he is a young boy and enlist into the marines and becomes a code talker on the front lines. the book was done really well and was very descriptive. the way that the author described most settings of the story was quit thrilling he made everything seem very realist and put the mental image of war in my head. he told of all the procedures that the marines had to take as they stormed the tropical beaches and dug charged the front line to take over island after next. through the eyes of Ned Begay he describes how scary the jungles turned battlefields were for the soldiers who put their lives on the line. it was a really good and interesting book to read.
