The escort commander sent two destroyers to investigate. With a smooth sea and little wind, they were able to spot the James' sailors just before 6 a. The destroyers' crews used cargo nets, Jacob's Ladders, life rings, and lines to pull survivors, many covered in oil, out of the water. Rescue operations were over by 8 a. US merchant ships had already been sunk in the Atlantic, and in mid-October, another US destroyer was hit by a torpedo but made it to Iceland.

AP Photo. Germany was unapologetic , saying US ships were escorting British ships in a war zone and had fired on German vessels before. The US didn't declare war, but the sinking drew the US further into the conflict in Europe, which was already more than two years old. About two weeks later, under pressure from the president, Congress further amended the Neutrality Acts passed in the s, revising them to allow US merchant ships to be armed and to sail into war zones.

In early May — days before the surviving Nazi leadership surrendered in Berlin — the U was scuttled in waters off the North Sea.
