The Explorers' Club, № DXXXII

Operation AXIOM: The World War
16 January 1917: The "Zimmermann Telegram," a coded message from the Imperial German foreign secretary to the Kaiser's ambassador to Mexico, proposing a German-Mexican alliance in the event of war with the United States—all but a certainty due to Germany's planned resumption of unrestricted submarine warfare—was intercepted & decoded by the British codebreakers of "Room 40."

Lest we forget.
