Raymond E. Lee, the American who Fought for Britain in its Darkest Hour

In 1940 and 1941, most Americans assumed Britain would not last long under the Blitz, the intense German bombing attacks on London and other cities. Even U.S. Ambassador Joe Kennedy believed the country was done for. Yet the American military attaché in London, Raymond E. Lee, refused to give up. With skill and relentless energy, he waged a behind-the-scenes battle to rally support for a nation he admired. Listen to my conversation with veteran journalist Andrew Nagorski, author of "1941: The Year Germany Lost the War" and an expert on WWII Europe.
