Indians in World War II
Native Americans played the same role as many other Americans who entered into World War II. They enlisted, fought in battles, suffered wounds, many were killed, some were captured, and some received medals.
This manuscript—available at AccessGenealogy.com—provides stories of these brave men and women who fought during World War II; casualty lists, POWs and KIAs. It also takes a brief look at the important Navajo code talkers role in the war.
