The Proud Tower, the Pulitzer Prize-winning
The Guns of August, and The Zimmermann Telegram
comprise Barbara W. Tuchman's classic histories of the First World
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 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
