National Parks Store: Film—Navajo Code Talkers

Presented by The History Channel


Reflect on the extraordinary men who created the code that saved countless lives.

Share on Facebook

It is one of the most intriguing and heroic stories in our nation’s history. In the 1940s 29 young men from government-run Navajo reservations bravely heeded the call of a nation in need–a nation which once nearly wiped out their ancestors and the memory of their culture.

In this eye-opening documentary, renowned historians and several Navajo veterans relate how a mere handful of WWII marines transcended generations of persecution, relocation, and genocide to devise the only unbreakable code in modern military history.

True patriots, these code talkers gave the United States enormous statistical advantage over enemy powers and saved countless lives. Don’t miss this important opportunity to reflect on these extraordinary men.
