It is thus evident that food shortages were common during the First World War. However, the severity of the food shortages was felt differently by the soldiers in the different battalions owing to the difference in size of armies, the frequency of food aids and the climate. For instance, the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History explains that the United States Food Administration pushed for the conservation of food , because food was not only necessary to their armies, but to those of their allies to relieve the famine in Europe. With the famine, food was what was going to win the war evidently.
