Korvettenkapitein Erich Topp torpedeerde met succes op 31 oktober 1941, de eerste Amerikaanse torpedobootjager USS Reuben James (DD-245). De Verenigde Staten waren nog niet in oorlog met Duitsland. Ondanks sterke protesten van groot-admiraal Erich Raeder bleef Hitler vasthouden aan zijn politiek ten opzichte van de Verenigde Staten en weigerde hij het bevel, dat de U-boten alleen maar defensieve maatregelen mochten nemen, in te trekken.
