Whatever Hitler’s response, those in London knew that the Administration’s failure meant there would be little assistance in this area coming from Washington as tension increased. ”111 In short, then, the debate epitomized the dual trends within the American population with the nonentanglement element winning through. This would limit Rooseveltian foreign policy to making nominal appeals for restraint in the late summer of 1939 as war approached. Indeed, the significance of this episode is in illustrating the extent to which Roosevelt’s policy options were constrained by nonentangling opinion.
