POD: Rather than admitting the Zimmermann telegram was a genuine German diplomatic telegram, the German government denies it is real, and claim it is part of a British fraud in an attempt to force the US into the war.

The subsequent backlash against Britain and Mexico (who was also thought to have colluded in the fraud) distracts the american people, and makes the entry of the USA into the Great War almost impossible. Without the pressure of the imminent arrival of thousands of american soldiers, the German March 1918 offensive would have been postponed until the summer allowing better planning and a more coordinated attack.
