Harold Tittmann, just appointed to the U.S. diplomatic representation to the Vatican, meets for the first time with Pope Pius XII.

Tittmann explains to the pope that America is determined to see the current conflict through to a successful conclusion, even if things should go so badly that Britain is defeated and America must stand alone. Surrender to and compromise with Nazi Germany are simply not an option.

It's not clear whether Pope Pius XII approves of this, but he agrees that Adolf Hitler cannot be trusted and says that he is unhappy with the relations between Germany and the Holy See.
