…It appears that the concept we call ‘information’ has a deep signifcance in the universe. We are used to living in what is sometimes called ‘the information age’. Information can be packaged in more electronic forms, dispatched more quickly and received more easily than ever before…The ultimate limit that we can expect to be placed upon information storage and processing rates are imposed by the constants of Nature…
The Constants of Nature, John D. Barrow, Chapter 3
In the summer of 2015 I was contacted by an author interested in the stories of the Sugar Camp WAVES–one of my favorite topics. Now their story as well as that of the WACS at Arlington Hall is available and wonderfully successful.
“Code Girls is an extraordinary book by an extraordinary author. Liza Mundy’s portraits of World War II codebreakers are so skillfully and vividly drawn that I felt as if I were right there with them—mastering ciphers, outwitting the Japanese army, sinking ships, breaking hearts, and even accidentally insulting Eleanor Roosevelt. I am an evangelist for this book: You must read it.”
author of The Good Girls Revolt – Lynn Povich
