Home Front

By: Matthew z.

What is the home front?

The Home Front is the home country of the army that is fighting overseas. The home front delivered the materials, food, and weapons to the battle front by boat and train every two weeks.

How did the home front help win the war?

The home front helped by making materials to supply the troops. If they did not, the soldiers would have nothing to fight with. They supplied them about every two weeks. They would make supplies such as artillery shells, ammo crates, sometimes food and most interesting poisonous gas made with rubber and metal. At the time, many men were off fighting the war, so many factory workers were women. Some people believe that we won the war because of the women working at the home front.
