This is the thirty-fifth installment in Eric Ludy’s epic summer Daily Thunder series entitled Spiritual Lessons from WW1. This episode showcases what many WW1 experts claim to be the climactic point of the war—Germany’s unleashing of unrestricted U-boat warfare and a subsequent telegram sent by their war minister Arthur Zimmermann. In early 1917, the United States was still strongly vying to remain a neutral country, and that is exactly the way Germany preferred it. But, due to a colossal blunder, the Germans end up, proverbially speaking, shooting themselves in the foot.
