NotesNews: 23 Dec: " .... Hitherto the Germans have pretended to turn a blind eye to American help for Great Britain. It was too late in any case, they used to say. A sudden outburst of wrath at the German Foreign Office during the week-end is the clearest sign that the German Government are now seriously perturbed at the prospect of ever greater help for Great Britain. A spokesman declared that American policy was "insupportable and no longer to be tolerated". ... In the hope of playing upon American isolationist opinion the spokesman - with Ribbentrop no doubt instructing him - did not reveal the true cause of German annoyance. Clearly it is Mr Roosevelt's suggestion that America should take over all British orders for armaments, and should lend the arms to Great Britain, which has startled the German Government out of their complacent cry that American arms would soon cease because Great Britain's stock of dollars was running short. ...2 [The Times pg4]
