Storyline

With the German invasion of Poland underway, Pug Henry is called to Washington for a meeting with President Roosevelt. The President is impressed that Pug foresaw the German-Soviet pact and asks him to write from time to time on items that might be of interest. Pug is a bit concerned when he learns from Warren, who is at flight school, that Madeline is now living and working in New York. Rhoda Henry continues to see Palmer Kirby. Byron Henry and Natalie Jastrow make their way to Warsaw and seek the protection of Natalie's friend, Leslie Slote, who works at the US Embassy. Arrangements are made for neutral foreign nationals to be evacuated through Germany, which may pose problems for any Jews seeking to escape the carnage. Byron still isn't quite sure what to do with his life so he decides to return to Italy to complete his work for Aaron Jastrow. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

In the German Command Center on the morning of the Polish invasion, several of the German officers are shown to already be wearing World War II campaign and service medals, including the 1939 version of the Iron Cross. While these awards were created relatively soon after the outbreak of war, it is unrealistic that any German officer would already have been awarded them before the initial invasion. See more »
