Storyline

With the lend-lease Act about to be passed by Congress, The President asks Pug Henry to lead an informal escort of 70 merchant ships delivering much needed supplies to England. They're banking on the fact that the German U-Boats won't fire on neutral U.S. warships. After the mission, President Roosevelt promises Pug the command of a battleship. First however, he must go to Moscow where he is reunited with Pamela Tudsbury. Rhoda Henry goes on a week's holiday with her lover, Palmer Kirby. When the Henry's are invited to the White House for dinner, Byron asks the President for help in resolving Aaron Jastrow's passport difficulties. He also goes to Pearl Harbor where he's re-united with bother Warren and sister Madeline. President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Churchill meet at Placentia Bay in Newfoundland. The Germans attack Russia and send them reeling as they push them further east. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

"Rudeltaktik" does not mean that U-Boats approach in orderly formation, identical bearings and distances of some hundred meters, but only that one boat keeps contact with a convoy without attacking until other boats have approached. No sub of WW II, not even an American sub, would have had a chance to minutely adjust its course to that of several other subs, and would not have been keeping a distance at which they would only be prone to collide which each other at the slightest change of direction. Also, a "Rudel" is no clearly defined operational unit under some central command or acting like one, but simply denotes all U-Boats that manage to keep contact to the same convoy and to keep up some minimum radio link with each other.
