Liza Mundy - Code Girls: The Untold Stories of the American Women Code Breakers of World War II

Liza Mundy is an award-winning reporter and New York Times bestselling author of several books, including Michelle, a biography of First Lady Michelle Obama. Her most recent work, Code Girls, tells the story of how more than ten thousand women served as codebreakers during World War II. Running early IBM computers and poring over reams of encrypted enemy messages, they worked tirelessly in a pair of makeshift code-breaking centers. A former longtime reporter for the Washington Post, she is currently director of the work and family program at the New America Foundation and is also a contributing editor at Politico Magazine.
