Herbert Block. "Working On Him," 1941
Unable to bomb Churchill's Britain into submission or to invade and conquer the island, Adolf Hitler attempted to cut the British merchant-shipping lifeline with submarines. His efforts were nearly successful, but a combination of convoys, airplanes, and intelligence gathered from communications intercepts helped the Allied cause. This 1941 Herblock cartoon shows Roosevelt and Churchill reviving a battered fighter labeled "shipping" while a glowering Nazi U-boat waits for the next round.
