  • Schindler’s list (scene 40)

Without American machines, the United Nations never could have won the war.”

— Joseph Stalin, during the dinner at the Tehran Conference

the result was, by the time America had entered the war in December 1941 after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, and when Adolf Hitler declared war on the US, it was already ready for wartime production, the US production back then was already booming like a rocket, the entire country for the next few years was involved in the war directly or indirectly.

“Don’t you know there’s a war on?”

people planted their vegetation, luxury production was stopped and gradually much of the civilian population was offering service to the army,

“I need not repeat the figures. The facts speak for themselves…. These men could not have been armed and equipped as they are had it not been for the miracle of production here at home. The production which has flowed from the country to all the battlefronts of the world has been due to the efforts of American business, American labour, and American farmers, working together as a patriotic team.”

— President Franklin D. Roosevelt, Navy Day speech, October 27, 1944

one has to understand that during this time America itself was not in a very comfortable situation economically, and it is natural to put one’s own country first in such a situation.
