As the weekend of December 6 and 7, 1941, approached, President Roosevelt's real fear was that Japan would attack the British in the Far East and not the U.S..

If the Japanese had chosen to only attack far off British Malaya, and not Pearl Harbor or the United States, the President actually had a speech prepared to give before a divided Congress. With the country solidly divided on the issue of getting involved in the war in Europe, its outcome, had it occurred, would not have been predictable.

This is the story of what precipitated such as possibility, beginning in August, 1941, in an obscure place known as Argentia Harbor inside Placentia Bay, Newfoundland.
