En el Pacífico Sur, en 1944 y 1945, se libraron batallas militares entre Estados Unidos y Japón. Rodeados del traqueteo de las balas y las explosiones de las bombas, un grupo de marines navajos enviaba mensajes secretos de un lado a otro. Usaron un código que crearon a partir del idioma navajo, y que el enemigo nunca pudo descifrar.

Estos jóvenes fueron reclutados de sus hogares en el suroeste de Estados Unidos. Trajeron consigo una resistencia física increíble y un lenguaje que nunca había sido escrito. Aprende sobre los locutores de claves navajos: héroes valientes y creativos que usaron su código indescifrable para ayudar a los Aliados a ganar la guerra.

In the South Pacific in 1944 and 1945, military battles raged between the United States and Japan. Surrounded by rattling bullets and exploding bombs, a group of Navajo Marines sent secret messages back and forth. They used a code they’d created from the Navajo language, a code the enemy was never able to crack.

These young men had been recruited from their homes in the American Southwest. They brought with them incredible physical stamina and a language that had never been written down. Learn more about the Navajo code talkers—brave, creative heroes who used their unbreakable code to help the Allies win the war.
