225 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H), bound in cloth and pictorial boards - in slipcase. B&w photographs. "In January 1917 the German Foreign Minister, Arthur Zimmermann, sent a cable to his Ambassador in Washington for transmission to the German Ambassador in Mexico. In it, (he) announced that Germany was going to start unrestricted submarine warfare against all shipping, Allied or neutral, in the Atlantic. He then made a startling and audacious proposal: the German Ambassador was to offer the Mexican government an alliance directed against the United States and, furthermore, to ask the Mexicans to contact the Japanese to see if they could be persuaded to switch sides (Japan was on the Allied side in the First World War). British Intelligence decoded the telegram and passed it on to the Americans, with momentous consquences." Very small printing ink mark on plain page 2. Small minor bump on slipcase.
