About the book:

The Proud Tower, the Pulitzer Prizewinning The Guns of August, and The Zimmermann Telegram comprise Barbara W. Tuchmans classic histories of the First World War era
 
In January 1917, the war in Europe was, at best, a tragic standoff. Britain knew that all was lost unless the United States joined the war, but President Wilson was unshakable in his neutrality. At just this moment, a crack team of British decoders in a quiet office known as Room 40 intercepted a document that would change history. The Zimmermann telegram was a top-secret message to the president of Mexico, inviting him to join Germany and Japan in an invasion of the United States. How Britain managed to inform the American government without revealing that the German codes had been broken makes for an incredible story of espionage and intrigue as only Barbara W. Tuchman could tell it.
 
Praise for The Zimmermann Telegram
 
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 writers sense of drama and a scholars obeisance to the evidence.The New York Times
 
The tale has most of the ingredients of an Eric Ambler spy thriller.Saturday Review
