The Code Talker Summary
Transcript of The Code Talker Summary
Ned is reunited with his old friend, Georgia Boy. The two friends are very happy to see each other. They are both part of Operation Cartwheel which is the Allied plan to attack Bougainville. If the operation is a success, the Allies will be on the attack. The soldiers have come up with names for all everything in the war to make things less scary. After scouting the area, the Marines and Navy are ready for attack, even though they don't get along very well.
When the command is given, all the Marines rush to do their job and get off the ship. The Marines are anxious to get started with the attack, but the airplanes still have to attack the island. As Ned and his shipmates watch the bombing they are very happy because it seems like nothing could survive that bombardment. Ned is also lucky he has a huge radio to protect him.
As soon as Ned and the other soldiers get off the boat, they are attacked by the Japanese, who had managed to survive the first attacks on the island. Ned gets into a foxhole while the Japanese fire on him.
As the Marines try to increase their hold on Bougainville, they come across Japanese supplies that are loaded with bombs. Ned and the other code-talkers have many important messages they are responsible for sending, it is a difficult and dangerous time. An earthquake occurs and knocks many Japanese snipers out of trees, it sets many people on edge. Also, Ned receives a letter from home and sends back his clothes for the "Protection Ceremony."
Everybody is nervous before the attack on Bougainville. The Marines are restless and preparing for the attack. For the first bit, the ships just fire at the island. The firing is so intense that all the marines believe the enemy has been destroyed. However, all the enemies are still alive and waiting to attack.
