America was helping Britain on the quiet, using lease lend of
ships in return for America being allowed to gain bases on British
controlled countries. It was the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbour
that brought America to declare war on Japan. Then Germany, as an
ally of Japan, also declared war on America. This brought America
directly into becoming a member of the Allied forces and to help
fight against Germany and Japan. It was the industrial might and
