As thrilling as a John Buchan novel (Times Literary Supplement)

A fine exciting book told with intense drama. A thriller of real life (Observer)

Brilliant. Told with great literary and dramatic talent (New York Times)

All the ingredients of an Eric Ambler spy thriller (Saturday Review)

Dazzling (Max Hastings on 'Guns of August')

Magnificent. A masterpiece of the historian's art (on 'Guns of August' Guardian)

From the Back Cover

'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, German Foreign Secretary Arthur Zimmerman gambled the future of the conflict on a single telegram. But this message was intercepted and decoded in Whitehall's legendary Room 40 - and Zimmerman's audacious scheme for world domination was exposed, bringing America into the war and changing the course of history. The story of how this happened and the incalculable consequences are thrillingly told in Barbara Tuchman's brilliant exploration.
