Information
First edition first print hardback of WINDTALKERS (The Making of the Film About the Navajo Code Talkers of World War II) by John Woo with Introduction by Senator Jeff Bingaman. Published by Newmarket Press in 2002. Signed 'all the best' by Woo in English and Chinese on the front endpaper. Full numberline is 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1.

The book is in near fine condition (green boards with black lettering to spine) with light bumping to the corners and the top and bottom edges of the spine. The book is in a near fine unclipped dust jacket which has light creasing to the corners. Internally the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears or other inscriptions.

With more than 100 dramatic movie and historical photos, the official tie-in to the film starring Nicolas Cage, based on real events about the Navajo Marine code talkers, who developed the only American code the Japanese never cracked—from MGM in June 2002. In the first movie made on the subject, director John Woo (Mission: Impossible 2, Face/Off) reveals the invaluable actions of the Navajo code talkers during the war in the Pacific, heroes whose bravery earned them the Congressional Medal of Honor.

The code talkers transmitted radio messages using a secret, efficient, unbreakable code based on their native language. The film's gripping climax takes place during the Battle of Saipan, when the Marines, fighting off the Japanese, must risk their lives to safeguard the code. This full-color companion book tells the fascinating story behind the movie—from facts about the code's creation to historical background of the Navajo nation; from a glimpse into the rigorous code talker training program to production details about transforming a Hawaiian landscape into a Saipan battlefront.

The pages are filled with captivating color images from the film and historic photographs from the U.S. Marines and the National Archives, as well as personal reflections by Woo and Senator Jeff Bingaman, screenwriters, producers, and actors—plus samples and translations of the Navajo code.
