The Zimmermann Telegram

In January of 1917, the war in Europe was, at best, a tragic standoff. Britain knew that Europe could be saved only if the United States joined the war. But President Wilson was unshakable in his neutrality and in his efforts to mediate peace. Then, with a single stroke, the tool to propel the United States into World War I came into a quiet British office. One of countless messages intercepted and read by the crack team of British decoders in room 40, the Zimmermann telegram was a topsecret message to the President of Mexico, inviting Mexico to join Germany and Japan in an invasion of the United States. Mexico's reward: recovery of her lost American territories. Germany's goal: to keep American fully occupied on her side of the Atlantic.How Britain managed to inform the United States of Germany's plan without revealing that the German codes had been broken makes for an incredible, true story of espionage and intrigue as only Barbara W. Tuchman could tell it.

About the Author

Barbara W. Tuchman (1912-1989) achieved prominence as a historian with The Zimmermann Telegram and international fame with The Guns of August--a huge bestseller and winner of the Pulitzer Prize. Her other works include Bible and Sword, The Proud Tower, Stilwell and the American Experience in China (for which Tuchman was awarded a second Pulitzer Prize), Notes from China, A Distant Mirror, Practicing History, The March of Folly, and The First Salute.


"A true, lucid thriller . . . a tremendous tale of hushed and unhushed uproars in the linked fields of war and diplomacy . . . Tuchman makes the most of it with a creative writer's sense of drama and a scholar's obeisance to the evidence."--The New York Times "The tale has most of the ingredients of an Eric Ambler spy thriller."--Saturday Review
