10. 5 The Lend Lease Act

As the Allies were reaching a financial crisis during the war, America once again entered the scene to help Great Britain. The Roosevelt administration framed the Lend-Lease program in March 1941. By this Bill, the President had the power to "Sell, transfer, title to, exchange, lease, lend or otherwise dispose of" articles of defense to any country whose protection the President thought was of vital importance. The Congress set aside 7 billion dollars to finance the Act. As a famous historian put it: "the lend-lease program converted the nation quite literally into the arsenal of democracy."
