    Hitler Declares War on the United States
    It was Hitler's plan to exterminate all Jews, he wanted to invade the rest of the Soviet Union, and Canada and the United States as well. But, thanks to the Soviet soldiers who kicked the Nazi bastards' ass at the West part of the Soviet Union, and also thanks to the American and British forces who managed to arrive at North Atlantic islands such as Iceland and Greenland before the Nazis could use these islands as Nazi bases to invade Canada and the United States.
    It was not easy for the allies to arrive at these North Atlantic islands and England, as many allied ships were torpedoed and sunk by German submarines. The allies finally succeeded to built bases at these islands and use them as "Aircraft Carriers". B-24 antisubmarine bombers were scrambled to hunt and bomb these damn Nazi submarines, and the rest of the US military aircrafts were then able to fly from United States / Canada to Greenland, Iceland and Ireland and finally England, to support England in allied bomb missions over Hitler's Germany, and the following allied invasion of Normandy and Itally to kick the Nazi bastards' ass.

    The True Story of the Philadelphia Experiment 1 - YouTube
    From around 2:00 into the "History Channel: The true story of the Philadelphia Experiment" clip the commentator says >>Allied convoys on a lifeline delivering men, goods and weapons to England, but the transport-ships were slow and clumsy, the allied war ships protecting them were a step behind enemy subs as they had wider turning radiuses, a U-boat could easily outmaneuver a destroyer, slip into the convoy and easily torpedoed defenseless targets, in 1942 alone, more than one thousand allied ships were torpedoed and sunk. To combat the subs, the US Navy developed some more maneuverable kind of warships called "Destroyer escort"<<. Former Captain William Van Allen add that the "Destroyer escort" is an anti submarine vessel.
