Concept note-1: -Passed on March 11, 1941, this act set up a system that would allow the United States to lend or lease war supplies to any nation deemed “vital to the defense of the United States."
Concept note-2: -By the end of June 1944 the United States had sent to the Soviets under lend-lease more than 11, 000 planes; over 6, 000 tanks and tank destroyers; and 300, 000 trucks and other military vehicles.
Concept note-3: -Totaling $11.3 billion, or $180 billion in today’s currency, the Lend-Lease Act of the United States supplied needed goods to the Soviet Union from 1941 to 1945 in support of what Stalin described to Roosevelt as the “enormous and difficult fight against the common enemy-bloodthirsty Hitlerism.”
Concept note-4: -Lend-Lease effectively ended the United States’ pretense of neutrality which had been enshrined in the Neutrality Acts of the 1930s. It was a decisive step away from non-interventionist policy and toward open support for the Allies. Lend-Lease’s precise significance to Allied victory in WW2 is debated.
