  • War comes in earnest to Britain, 1940

  • German undeclared naval warfare against US

  • Lend-Lease Programme to aid Britain, 1941

We shall in this lecture see that the classic definition of neutrality is far removed from President Roosevelt's actions as he seeks increasingly to support Britain whilst at the same time keeping America out of the hostilities.
