There she met the man who would become her husband, groundbreaking cryptologist William Friedman. Though she and Friedman are in many ways the “Adam and Eve” of the NSA, Elizebeth’s story, incredibly, has never been told until now. In THE WOMAN WHO SMASHED CODES, A TRUE STORY OF LOVE, SPIES, AND THE UNLIKELY HEROINE WHO OUTWITTED AMERICA’S ENEMIES, Jason Fagone chronicles the life of this extraordinary woman who played an integral role in our nation’s espionage history for forty years. using her talents first to catch gangsters and smugglers, and ultimately to crack multiple versions of the Enigma machine used by German spies. Author Jason Fagone, named one of the “Ten young Writers on the Rise” by the Columbia Journalism Review, unveils America’s code-breaking history through the prism of Smith’s life.
