Manufacturer Description

Factional account of USA early entry into WWII at the Jekyll Island Club. It should have been a milk-run, for the decorated WWII U-boat captain. All he had to do was: Take a WWI missing merchant submarine to America's unprotected coast, in the fall of 1941. Trade gold bars to war-profiteers for flagons of mercury. Then take a November cruise to the Bahamas and liaise with a Japanese vessel assigned to pick up the war material – a week before the attack on Pearl Harbor. The Jekyll Island Club, once the winter home to multimillionaire members who controlled one-eighth of the world's wealth, was supposed to play host to the much-married Countess Millicent 'Millie' Zhirkov (nee Talmadge), on her 75th birthday. She was unaware a Nazi U-Boat, an English spy, the FBI and the President's mistress would also attend. However, no one considered, “Murphy's Law” !
