In the spirit of Memorial Day, if you haven’t heard the story of the Navajo Code Talkers, here is a link to their official site, with more information about their story. Basically, they created an encryption code based on the Navajo language which was used in WWII, and never broken by Axis powers. Along with the decryption efforts of Bletchley Park, cryptology was monumentally important in the outcome of the war.
