Food for War

Alan F. Wilt

Oxford University Press

This chapter provides a background on the coming together of food and agriculture with rearmament during the last half of the 1930s. What happened in food and agriculture during the First World War, the 1920s, and the first half of the 1930s had bearing on what happened later. Food-related concerns, like every facet of British life between World War I and the mid-1930s, went through a series of ups and downs with painful adjustments, or failures to adjust, to a succession of new, seemingly unprecedented situations. The chapter details significant events and solutions during the mentioned timeframe. The establishment of procedures and the setting up of an apparatus for dealing with food and agriculture in case war should break out was about to begin.
