CODE GIRLS The Untold Story of the American Women Code Breakers of World War II

by | Read by Erin Bennett

History • 14 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Erin Bennett splendidly narrates this account of the many women who—as cryptographers, stenographers, mathematicians, and linguists—contributed greatly to the Allies’ victory in WWII. Their ability to decipher/decode German and Japanese military and diplomatic communications in a relatively short period of time provided vital intelligence that was key to beating back and ultimately defeating the Axis nations. Bennett sounds like a natural in all aspects of her narration. Her voice is pleasing to the ear, clear in pronunciation, and suitably expressive. She makes what is doubtless a well-scripted reading seem effortless and unrehearsed. M.T.F. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2017]
