Navajo Code Talkers
One of the earliest documentaries made about the code and language that the Japanese could not break in the Pacific war, nor even know its origins. The film illustrates how the Navajo Code Talkers came about, their training and the use of the code in the war against the Japanese. The entire effort had been kept classified for many years and the Navajo lived with the long term secrecy which they were bound by. Then ultimately the long deserved recognition for their heroic efforts in helping win the war was given. All this is shown by archive footage and photographs, plus interviews with the people involved. The film was made in 1982 by Tom McCarthy.
