The Taste of War World War Two and the Battle for Food Free read Ü 104 Rce within Nazi policy and contributed to the decision to murder hundreds of thousands of 'useless eaters' in Euro. This is a wide ranging history of food and food policy during the second world war It offers a strong reminder that despite the enormous scale of violence in this conflict the resulting famines killed even people And it describes how different government tried or not to cope with the challenge of finding adeuate food for civilians and soldiersFood shortages and famines during the war can be attributed to a range of causes which as usual had the worst results when they occurred together The war created front lines that acted as blocks to trade separating food producers from food consumers starving one group while saddling another with rotting surpluses This was often worsened by the ruthless confiscation of transport especially shipping to meet military demands and compensate for the loss of shipping to enemy action elsewhere The confiscation of food by armies that lived off the land robbed the local population of their food supply And finally starvation was used deliberately as a weapon of war or of genocide The British famously joked that the American GIs were overpaid overfed oversexed and over here The second part of that claim may have had some merit given that the standard American military ration contained 4300 calories rising theoretically to over 4700 for soldiers on the front line The US government gave a high priority to feeding its soldiers even at the expense of allied civilians But it had to resources to do both that and supply its allies with food through lend lease which probably saved the life of many Russians In stark contrast the Japanese government had to resort to declaring isolated garrisons self sufficient which too often meant that its soldiers had to try to survive on wild grasses and leaves Collingham cites the startling statistic that 60% of the 174 million deaths in the Japanese military were not due to enemy fire but to starvation malnutrition and associated diseases On Guadalcanal or New Guinea the fraction of death to starvation was probably much higher than that As for Japanese civilians in the homeland from 1944 they were on the verge of famineNotoriously Nazi regime tried to supply its soldiers in the East by confiscating the food supplies of the Ukraine coldly calculating that millions of Soviet citizens would starve as a result Its occupation of some of the richest agricultural regions of the USSR resulted in serious food shortages also in the areas if failed to conuer Nevertheless due to its brutal inefficiency and callous mismanagement it largely failed to achieve its goals The wartime socialism adopted by the British government with a flexible management of internal food production and imports actually managed to improve the uality of the food eaten by much its civilian population through its rationing program But it was unimaginative in its food it supply to soldiers and was also guilty of callously exporting hunger to its colonies causing famines in India The author makes some fascinating if brief forays into food science and food technology When we think of wartime technology advances we usually think of aircraft and tanks radar and breakthroughs in cryptanalysis and nuclear weapons But a lot of research also went towards the production preservation and distribution of food with increasing attention for the need to provide soldiers and civilians with a balanced diet Some of this went into the production and advocacy of extremely dubious substitute foods a few of them clearly harmful and revolting notably the German invention of a sausage made from industrial waste destined for consumption by concentration camp inmates many of whom died as a result Some innovations were ingenious expedients such as the Australian techniue of sprouting peas in tins that soldiers could carry on their belts the shoots providing necessary vitamins or the Russian habit of making infusions from pine needles for the same reason But a lot of the industrial effort when intro canning drying and packaging in the hot and humid South Pacific improvements in storage technology reduced wastage from over 40% to 136%Collingham tells the story of a complex interaction between geography natural resources agricultural and nutitrional science politics and military action Her book is rich in information well structured and well written Pure instinct The MO of High Performance People and Teams to Accidental Saints Finding God in All the Wrong People the decision Go Deep to murder hundreds of The Talking Tree and other Stories thousands of 'useless eaters' in Euro.

The Taste of War World War Two and the Battle for Food Free read Ü 104 Tegy on both the military and home fronts this title demonstrates how the issue of access to food was a driving fo. This was a fascinating read far so than I d expected I d picked this book up hoping for some kind of history of rationing and the British wartime food drive Dig for Victory and all that What I actually got was an incredibly well researched comprehensive and thoroughly interesting history of the role food played in the Second World War its role in the origins of the war the course of it the ending of it and finally the aftermath During the course of the war people died from starvation than in active military combat many many The actual numbers are staggering 3 million in Bengal over 1 million in Leningrad 300000 in Greece 20000 in Holland 2 million in Vietnam It is estimated that over 20 million people died of starvation during the course of the warThe author argues that it was partly the worldwide pressure for food during the agricultural decline of the 1930s that led both Germany and Japan to begin eyeing up their neighbours as a source of food Both countries chose to export their hunger problems occupying other countries and appropriating their food supplies in order to feed their own populations Numerous Nazi officials are uoted as saying that every country in Europe could starve before Germans would feel want Germany saw the Ukraine and the Soviet Union as an unlimited source of agricultural land and food in much the same as Japan saw ChinaHowever she also explores how the British exported their own hunger problems most notably to India and the African conflicts increasing the pressure on these countries to produce and food to feed the Allied armies and the British civilian population Despite all the talk we ve heard over the years of rationing and deprivation during wartime no one in Britain was ever in any danger of starvingAnd of course the overarching theme of this book is America America was the only country to emerge from the war with its economy booming its people better paid and better fed than ever before The American Lend Lease program arguably kept the war alive because it is entirely possible that had the British population been exposed to the kind of deprivation that citizens in occupied Europe were experiencing morale would have collapsed But even then the American government was prepared to leave its Allies desperately scrabbling for food before it would cut its own troops or citizens rations all of which were far generous than was necessaryCollingham concludes by arguing that it was the years of want and deprivation and the vision of healthy well fed GIs enjoying the fruits of American produce Coca Cola and chocolate that have led to the over processed over packaged food we consume today that has led to so many health issues And we may find ourselves coming full circle at some point and having to return our diets to the old staples of bread and potatoes as the world s food supply comes once again increasingly under pressure
