by Liza Mundy
In Code Girls, Liza Mundy has brought to life an "extraordinary" story of American courage, service, and science. Recruited from small Southern towns and posh New England colleges, 10,000 American women served the U.S. Army and Navy as code breakers during World War II. While their brothers and husbands took up arms, these women moved to Washington and, under strict vows of secrecy, learned the meticulous work of breaking German and Japanese military codes. Their code-breaking triumphs shortened the war, saved countless lives, and gave them access to careers previously denied to them.
