Code talkers and warriors : Native Americans and World War II

Tom Holm

"Code Talkers and Warriors", part of the insightful new "Landmark Events in Native American History" set, chronicles Native American life during World War II. This impeccably researched and illustrated volume covers issues such as draft resistance on the basis of religion and sovereignty; the relocation of Native Americans to West Coast defense plants; how the war facilitated assimilationist thinking; the transition to post-war life; and Native American contributions to the war effort, such as the famed code talkers and Iwo Jima.
