SPYING ON SPIES How Elizebeth Smith Friedman Broke the Nazis' Secret Codes

by | Read by Sandy Rustin

Children Ages 10+ • 3.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Sandy Rustin earned an Earphones Award for her narration of Marissa Moss's WOMAN WHO SPLIT THE ATOM, about the physicist Lise Meitner. Now she returns to lend her vocal talents to Moss's follow-up, a biography of another brilliant woman whose contributions have been overlooked. Rustin's clear, musical voice introduces listeners to Elizebeth Smith Friedman, who, with her husband, effectively established the discipline of cryptanalysis in the U.S. Working as the head of her own unit during WWII, she broke the Enigma cipher and exposed Nazi espionage in South America. Rustin's delivery is restrained yet allows for exasperation to break through at the many times Friedman was sidelined and underestimated. Important and inspiring.
