History Happy Hour: Code Girls

The riveting story of the young American women who cracked German and Japanese codes to help win World War II.

In a time when women were not encouraged to have careers or even seek jobs, the U.S. Army recruited thousands of schoolteachers to become code breakers during WWII. Their topsecret work involved unscrambling sequences of letters and numbers to reveal enemy messages, and creating phony dispatches to confuse the Germans about D-Day landing sites. Liza Mundy’s Code Girls weaves together thorough research and the personal stories of the women who helped to win the Second World War.
