My opinion on Drafting in ww1
I think that drafting in WW1 wasn't a bad thing. The government was just

volunteered willingly, they new of the risks, and that may not come back. They believed
they hand to job to do, in protecting the country. They thought that being in the war
war something to be proud of and the people back home honored them for the work.
Women and children were with out a father figure in the home and times were harder.
They set up bonds and food rations just to help out as well as the propaganda posters all
around encouraging the men to go and fight for their country.
