By the winter of 1916/17, World War I had reached a deadlock. While the Allies commanded greater resources and fielded more soldiers than the Central Powers, German armies had penetrated deep into Russia and France, and tenaciously held on to their conquered empire. Hoping to break the stalemate on the western front, the exhausted Allies sought to bring the neutral United States into the conflict. A golden opportunity to force American intervention seemed at hand when British naval intelligence intercepted a secret telegram detailing a German alliance offer to Mexico. In it, Berlin's foreign se

World War I Remembered( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To most Americans, World War I is a distant memory, or completely forgotten. But the war was important to America and its people. Millions of men and women served in the military or volunteered at home. More than 116,000 never came home. During and after the war, the United States was thrust into a leading role on the world stage; this was the start of 'the American century'.... This volume of essays, written by eminent World War I scholars, is presented to provide a better understanding of this monumental period in our history." -- back cover
The Ralph Bunche Library presents : Thomas Boghardt, "The Zimmermann Telegram : intelligence, diplomacy, and America's entry into World War I" by Thomas Boghardt( Visual )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the dark winter of 1917, as World War I was deadlocked, Britain knew that Europe could be saved only if the United States joined the war. But President Wilson remained unshakable in his neutrality. Then, with a single stroke, the tool to propel America into the war came into a quiet British office. One of countless messages intercepted by the crack team of British decoders, the Zimmermann telegram was a top-secret message from Berlin inviting Mexico to join Japan in an invasion of the United States: Mexico would recover her lost American territories while keeping the U.S. occupied on her side of the Atlantic. How Britain managed to inform America of Germany's plan without revealing that the German codes had been broken makes for an incredible, true story of espionage, intrigue, and international politics"--Publisher's description

Looks at the role of the Belgian underground movement La Dame Blanche, the role of the Zimmermann telegram in bringing the U.S. into the war and the development of codes and codebreaking.
