Read & Download ☆ Code Girls The Untold Story of the American Women Code Breakers Who Helped Win World War II 105 In the tradition of Hidden Figures and The Girls of Atomic City Code Girls is the astonishing untold story of the young American women who cracked key Axis codes helping to secure Allied victory and revolutionizing the field of cryptanalysisRecruited by the US Army and Navy from small towns and. 45 starsSo glad I finally got around to reading this one as it was everything I hoped it would be I love reading books that showcase remarkable women doing extraordinary things Highly recommend if you enjoy non fiction history about World War 2 andor books that celebrate the achievements of women Having watched the movie The Imitation Game I had some basic knowledge about codebreaking during World War 2 but this book really gave me a much better understanding particularly the important role played by American women in helping win the war Over 10 thousand young women many teachers or college students were recruited by the US government to work as codebreakers Their work was so secretive that most downplayed their jobs when talking with friends and family as just typical secretarial work Decades later many of the codebreakers were highly reluctant to discuss their work during the war even though the government had given them permission to speak of their experiences It was incredibly heartbreaking to read the toll this job took and how it had a negative impact on some women for the rest of their lives While the book does focus on the lives of a few women in particular you do get a glimpse into the lives of many other codebreakers and it was utterly fascinating learn about their experiences It was slightly frustrating though when a person would be brought up and then not mentioned again until the very end of the book and by that point you had forgotten who they were but for the most part it was a fairly easy book to follow I highly recommend getting the updated version of this book I believe it might only be available in paperback as it contains some updates on a few of the people featured as well as the author sharing some stories from readers of this book who reached out to her I actually shed a few tears while reading because it was incredibly awesome to hear that this book gave people an opportunity to learn about their family history This book really shines a light on women who deserve recognition for their contribution to the war effort I honestly can t say enough good things about it Just go out and read it already
