Who were the American women that secretly served as codebreakers during World War II? How did this hidden chapter of the war — nearly erased from history— help shorten the war? In Code Girls: The Untold Story of the American Women Code Breakers of World War II, bestselling author Liza Mundy brings these stories to life — detailing how these female codebreakers saved countless lives. Featuring dazzling research and interviews with surviving code girls, Mundy delivers an instant classic of wartime history. 

Mundy will take the stage with WITF's Scott LaMar to discuss her fascinating book and a "story of courage and determination that makes you want to work harder and be better."
