Transcript of Impact of The WW1 Have on the home front?

Role of Women Home Front WW1
Women went to work at the factories in America, England, and may other countries.
They took jobs that were tradionally held by men. The men went to war and the women made the weapons of the war.
Women also served in the U.S. as pilots in the W.A.S.P.s that stands for Woman Auxilliary Service Pilots.
They flew aircraft from the factories to the air bases where they were either taken over by their combat crews or to training bases.

Thats where an airplane pulled a large wind sock behind it in order for airial gunners or antiaircraft crews could target practice on a moving target. Role of Government
Government were unwilling to load money off other countries so they increased taxes.
The Prohibition was set up to restrict the sale and use as scarce grain supplies were reserved for soldiers abroad.

The government spent more attention on propaganda and not enough on mobilization of manpower. Total War
The term home front was used for the first time during World War I and perfectly symbolized this new concept of a war in which the civilian population behind the lines was directly and critically involved in the war.

Young men were removed from production jobs, and were replaced by women.
Rationing occurred on the home fronts. One of the features of Total War in Britain was the use of propaganda posters to divert all attention to the War on the home front.
Military success was critically dependent on a country's ability to produce a continuous supply of goods for their armies. Conscription The drafting of men for military service.
It means that the army has drafted you into the said army and you must fight.
Young men were removed from production jobs, and were replaced by women. Propaganda
Propaganda was a popular tool used in WW1 to change the opinions of the masses.
Propaganda is thought to have helped the war effort by getting people to support the war by doing things such as buying war bonds.
The effects of WW1 propaganda are still around today aiding many of the very strong opinions harbored by many.

They were posters glorifiing the act of war, and quite honestly 'conning' young men and women into this group of patiots that belived fighting was the only way to show your love for your contry.
