In WWII, when was the first battle between a U.S. destroyer and a German submarine?
10.04.1941 Destroyer NIBLACK (DD-424) while rescuing survivors of torpedoed Netherlands freighter, depth charges German submarine off Iceland; this is believed to be the first action of the war between United States and German vessels.
Si vis pacem, para bellum.
"Ако желиш мир, спремај се за рат"
President Roosevelt was specifically intending to cause an incident in the Atlantic between US and German ships so that an enraged - formerly isolationist - American populace would let him declare war on Germany. On September 5th, 1939 he declared the Neutrality Patrol, that US ships could attack German ships within 300 miles of the US coast.
In April of 1941 he ordered US ships to convoy ships to Iceland.
In September of 1941 he ordered US ships to convoy all ships going to England, as far as south of Iceland.
Before Pearl Harbour there had been 4 engagements between US destroyers and German submarines; two of the destroyers were torpedoed, one sunk, with a total loss of lives of about 140 men.
ÃÀÃÈ, you win the prize; you're next. (well, that didn't come out right.)

Warlord: Lads, does anyone know if in the Burma Road map (Chinese Campaign) of GZM11, the Jap bomber and strike planes ever run out? I have been shooting them down for about three hours now, and they just keep showing up! My strategy is based on air supremacy...

Squire James: Try and load it in the map editor and have a look at the aviation section. If the numbers seem normal, it might be a scripting thing (if so, that'd be rather neat)
