December 13, 1941 – News Reports of the day – NBC – Red And Blue Networks – Gordon Skene Sound Collection

December 13, 1941 – almost a week since the U.S. got involved in the War, it was now a World War. And suddenly, America was preoccupied with reports, stories, facts and figures. What were we supposed to do now? Prior to this, America took tacit interest in what was going on in Europe. Most Americans felt it was “their war” and not ours. And even though the reports were harrowing and at times grim, there was enough perceived distance, along with a certain “maybe tomorrow” attitude over our eventual involvement that it seemed far enough off not to be too concerned.

October 17, 1941 – NBC Blue Network – News Here and Abroad – Gordon Skene Sound Collection

October 17, 1941 – With war slowly becoming a real possibility, a two-ocean crisis was developing and changes in the Japanese government made war more of an eventuality than ever.

German submarines had torpedoed the U.S. Destroyer USS Kearney, southwest of Iceland (i.e. in neutral waters) and the move challenged Washington to retaliate and atmosphere around Capitol Hill was how to move most effectively. The Navy took counter-measures in the North Atlantic as a result of the attack.

October 11, 1941 – News Of The World – NBC Blue Network – Gordon Skene Sound Collection –

October 11, 1941. Word from Berlin gave breathless accounts of major German advances toward Moscow. The Russian Army was being obliterated along the Eastern Front, with Marshall Timoshenko’s Army largely wiped out, with huge losses of troops and equipment. Reports of large numbers of Russian prisoners being taken as well as capture of Russian supplies was increasing steadily along the Eastern Front. Further reports told that all Russian attempts at breaking through the German encirclements had collapsed and that the area just west of Moscow was being taken – and that Moscow was in sight, although there was no official estimate as to just how far from the Russian capitol they were, rumors from the High Command said some units were 120 miles away. Reports also said that Russian attempts at breaking out of the Leningrad area had failed and that German bombers had staged an aerial assault on Leningrad and Moscow the previous night.
