Navajos Warriors, The Great Secret

This documentary offers a unique insight into the Native-American Navajo Warrior Nation, highlighting the extraordinary story of the Code Talkers in the Second World War. This special unit of the Marines developed a secret code for radio communications based on Navajo, a non-written and very complex language. Many historians consider this strategy to be a key factor in the Allies’ victory in the Pacific.
