Starvation Blockade Of Germany

Postby Mortimer » 2 years 11 months ago (Sat Dec 19, 2015 4:19 am)

The British used a naval blockade to stop foodstuffs from entering Germany. After the armistice in 1918 the blockade was kept in place leading to many deaths from starvation and malnutrition related diseases -

C Paul Vincent has written a book called The Politics of Hunger - The Allied Blockade of Germany 1915-1919. It goes into detail about the causes, planning and effects of the blockade. Here is a review by Robert A Hall which originally appeared in the Journal of Historical Review in 1986 -
