Recruited by the U.S. Army and Navy from small towns and elite colleges, more than ten thousand women served as codebreakers during World War II. While their brothers and boyfriends took up arms, these women moved to Washington and learned the meticulous work of code-breaking. Their efforts shortened the war, saved countless lives, and gave them access to careers previously denied to them. A strict vow of secrecy nearly erased their efforts from history, but here, through interviews with surviving code girls, Liza Mundy brings to life this riveting story of American courage, service, and scientific accomplishment.

"Mundy is a fine storyteller.... A well-researched, compellingly written, crucial addition to the literature of American involvement in World War II."—Kirkus (starred review)
