Sadly, war has been a recurring global theme of the 20th century, and it stands to reason that food has been as affected by war as any other part of peoples’ lives. Therefore, food and war is going to the theme of my next few posts.

Food shortages, government rationing, government campaigns to produce your own food, information about what men in uniform got to eat… I’ll see what I can find in the Archives!
