WW2 Tankers North Alantic

I watched part of a programme on the History channel here in NZ this evening. Have I missed something but during the programme the American announcer stated that if it was not for the the US tankers and escorts coming in to the war effort in 1942 Britain would have lost the war.

It took three years for the US to make up its mind and no doubt only did it when they could see the dollars they would make. There is little doubt with their help and bases etc the convoys were given more protection.

60 years after the end of the war and we are still getting propaganda from the US.
