Write a paragraph explaining how the concept of total war affected the warring nations' economies.
The concept of total war can both destroy and help a warring countries economy. The warring country will see an increase in jobs and work because of being at war, but if they lose the war the economy is devastated./In WW I, Germany didn't have enough agriculture to grow sufficient food for the population, nor did it have enough raw materials to produce everything it needed for the war effort. The naval war went against Germany, with the Royal Navy blockading its ports. Equally its land trade routes were unable to import the goods because of the war in Europe.As time progressed, shortages became more and more severe. Many foodstuffs were made from lower quality alternatives, dubbed 'ersatz'. The quality of equipment issued to soldiers declined. Eventually the toll was too much on the people and morale collapsed. The war became unsustainable and they agreed to the terms of the armistice.
