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

The German submarines sight the convoy shortly after sunrise in the north Atlantic, west of Iceland. That would translate to 9-10 o'clock in Berlin. So the radio call requesting instructions wouldn't reach the German High Command in the early morning hours. See more »
