"On 20 September 1941, a German U-boat sinks a US ship, further deteriorating relations between the two countries that are officially not at war with each other. During the past months, several incidents have already occurred where German U-boats sank American vessels delivering supplies to Britain. Despite America's ever convenient expanding neutrality zones which makes it inevitable for US ships to end up engaging German U-boats, FDR makes an announcement holding Germany responsible for the situation."
