Robin Moor
   The Robin Moor was an unarmed U.S. merchant ship sunk by a German submarine in the south Atlantic Ocean 700 miles off the coast of Africa on 21 May 1941. The crew was cast adrift in lifeboats with limited supplies. In a message to Congress, President Franklin D. Roosevelt deemed it “an act of piracy” and called for action to resist the spread of German naval power.
