Meet The 99-Year-Old US Navy Code Breaker Who Helped Us Win WWII


Recommended Posts


"The 99-year-old played a critical role in helping the Allies win World War II. As a code breaker working with a secret unit in the US Navy, Parsons was instrumental in deciphering the enemy’s secret codes, but her work went unacknowledged for decades after the war.

For many years after the war, full credit for cracking Germany’s Enigma machine went to Bletchley Park, the English estate where famed cryptanalyst, mathematician, and computer scientist Alan Turing once worked."
