At the beginning of World War II, with England standing alone against Germany in Europe, Hitler began a daily bombing blitz of England.
Desperate for supplies to protect England, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill asked U.S. President Roosevelt for assistance to fight off Germany’s expected invasion.
By early 1941, President Franklin D. Roosevelt knew that the U.S. needed to give support to England and help them.
Even though sympathies were starting to sway, many Americans still held a strong isolationist stance.
Also, Congress had passed the Neutrality Acts to keep America neutral during the WWII conflict.
Roosevelt had to find a way to provide supplies to England without offending isolationist Americans who did not want to get involved in the war.
Then Roosevelt had an idea… What if… in exchange for the lease of some British islands in the Caribbean Sea, the U.S. lends England some ships and munitions?
Technically this did not break the Neutrality laws; Congress finally passed the Lend-Lease Act in March 1941 after a bitter debate.
Roosevelt had found a way to assist the British. The Lend- Lease Act provided crucial military supplies for Britain’s fight against Nazi Germany.

“Ho hum! When he’s finished pecking down that last tree he’ll quite likely be tired.”
