FREE READ The Zimmermann Telegram 109 D domination was exposed bringing America into the war and changing the course of history The story of how this happened and the incalculable conseuences are thrillingly told in Barbara Tuchman's brilliant exploration This is the history of the political and diplomatic events that caused the United States to enter World War I Most of us have a vague recollection from our school text books that the sinking of the Lusitania had something to do with the war But the Lusitania was torpedoed on May 7 1915 two years prior to America entering the war in 1917 Further the Lusitania was a British ship not American Remember the Lusitania came into existence as a rallying cry after the USA had declared warThe direction of history is always unpredictable at the time of the events than they are for the reader of history who has knowledge of subseuent events All readers of history today know how the story ends so it s easy to presume that there was strong support for entry into the war Therefore it is difficult to comprehend the strength of the antiwar sentiments within the United States prior to 1917 It is true that there were a number of east coast politicians who favored entering the war But President Wilson had won reelection in 1916 under the motto He Kept Us Out Of War He won largely because of strong antiwar feelings in the midwestern and western states As a matter of fact my grandparents voted for the first time in their lives that year because they felt so strongly that the country should stay out of warSuddenly in 1917 the New York Times published the Zimmermann telegram and the mood of the country shifted Many of the newspapers that had been staunchly antiwar up to that point then changed their positions This book makes the case that the closest thing to a Pearl Harbor Event for WWI was a deciphered secret message from German Foreign Minister Arthur Zimmermann to the German Minister to Mexico von Eckhardt offering United States territory to Mexico in return for joining the German cause This was a sensitive issue at the time because Mexican American relations were uite strained Until January 1917 the United States had nearly 5000 troops inside Mexico and 110000 National Guard mobilized for border service because of border violence The Germans knew this and figured that a war with Mexico would keep the United States out of the European warThis book tells the story of how the German communication codes were deciphered and how news about the Zimmermann telegram was released in such a way that the Germans wouldn t know that their codes had been broken Barbara Tuchman suggests that the Germans were so sure of their intellectual superiority that they never seriously considered the possibility that their codes had been broken by others They instead concluded that a copy of the message had been stolen after it was decoded by German embassy personnel Tuchman also suggests that if the Germans had simply denied that they had sent the message ie claim that it was a British fake it is possible that the message wouldn t have been taken seriously But Arthur Zimmermann decided to acknowledged that he had sent the message Speculation as to why he did this could make this review even longerBarbara Tuchman maintains that the telegram by itself was not the cause of America entering the war but rather it was the straw that broke the camel s back It s true that the unrestricted submarine warfare may have eventually caused the American entry Which raises the uestion how would history have been different if the Zimmermann telegram had never existed Tuchmann argues that without the telegram the American entry into the war would almost certainly have been delayed and such a delay may have changed the war situation on the ground in Europe The Cordax Mondotta The Adventures of Avery Avedaan #1 political and diplomatic events that caused the United States to enter World War I Most of us

FREE READ The Zimmermann Telegram 109 Nothing can stop an enemy from picking wireless messages out of the free air and nothing did In England Room 40 was born In January 1917 with the First World War locked in terrible stalemate and America still neutral There is something very strange about the First World War I mean surely there must be something I previously knew about it that must be trueThe 64000 uestion is what event brought the United States into the First World WarBefore reading this book I would have said that it was the sinking of the Lusitania that brought the US into the war but in fact that happened two years prior to the US entry Woodrow Wilson following this sinking said he was too proud to fight over something like that I had absolutely no idea that the thing that finally tipped the scales and got the US into the war was a intercepted telegram that the British were able to decode and that had been sent by the Germans using US telegram lines with US approval although obviously not for the purpose the Germans were putting them toAnd that purpose reads like the sort of story you would only read today in one of Lyndon LaRouche s newspapers This is the sort of conspiracy that really had to be true as it was just too stupid for anyone to have made up with any expectation that anyone else would believe The PlotGermany needs to stop the US from supplying weapons and food to Britain so as to effectively take her out of the war To do this Germany has decided to torpedo US ships and put a blockade on Britain that will bring her to her knees within a matter of months you might remember from The Guns of August that Germany always seems to have expected every aspect of the war to last a matter of months Because the US would have to take some time to get an army ready to cross the Atlantic and come to Britain s military aid and because Britain wouldn t be able to hold out for that long Germany would inevitably win the war But just to make absolutely sure Germany also proposed getting Mexico and Japan to invade the US thereby giving the US government something to think about closer to home Mexico was promised all of her previous territories that the US had taken from her including Texas and New Mexico and although the Germans didn t really expect these countries to beat the US in a war that wasn t really the point or intention The intention was to keep the US out of the real war for long enough for Germany to win and so make the rest a bit of a foregone conclusionAudacious noSo Britain has the German message in her sweaty hands and has translated it using German codes which they have broken years before and that the Germans haven t changed since the start of the war because the Germans are far too clever for the Allies and the Allies would never be smart enough to crack thatBut having a message and being able to use it are uite different things What if exposing the message simultaneously gives away the fact that you know the German codes What is worth to you Getting the US into the war and given the contents of the message that seems likely in any case or having to fight the remainder of the war without being able to listen into enemy messagesLike I said this is the sort of book that reads like it is all made up sort of a cross between a history book and The 39 Steps The fact that this telegram was actually the thing that got the US into the war and not some ship being sunk is only one of the surprises in store in this book Thanks again Richard I ve just realised that I ve read one
