Boston, MA, June 04, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- New Word City llc announces the publication of The Navajo Code Talkers by award-winning journalist Bruce Watson.
A top-secret military code helped win World War II in the Pacific. The unbroken code was not based on numbers or symbols but on birds and whales and fish. This is the story of the Navajo Code Talkers, who left high desert country to storm tropical jungles, armed only with their language and a rare courage in the face of fire. Here, in this digital short, Watson tells the story, based on interviews and oral histories by the last living Code Talkers.
“It’s finding and telling little-known stories - stories that changed the course of history - that makes digital publishing so exciting today,” says New Word City founder and CEO Donna Carpenter.
The title is available at all major online booksellers, including Amazon, the iBookstore, and Barnes & Noble.
