    [E–pub New] (The Taste of War World War Two and the Battle for Food) By Lizzie Collingham I couldn't decide whether to give this book one star or two; I almost decided on two stars because I did learn from it Butshe doesn't really prove her thesis The book is repetitive and she relies far too often on it is likely seems certain or it is possible That isn't evidence to prove anything Her main point was that WWII was caused by a need for food That's true but it isn't the only cause The author neglects the po

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
