Reading Chester Nez's impression of his early life and military experience was a wonder read. There are books about the Navajo Code Talkers, as well as movies, but this is the only memoir. Using code talkers were kept confidential and top secret for quite a while.
 
A lot of military terms and such were used throughout the book. This is an important part of the book, but not being military, I struggled and sometimes skimmed these parts of the book. I was definitely more interested in Nez's personal side than the actual military tactic specifics.
