200–250 words and demonstrate course-related knowledge Be sure to cite specific
examples/ evidence from the course materials to substantiate your conclusions.
In this weeks discussion, I want you to focus on the
economies and morale of the nations that fought World War II.
R. A. C. Parker writes: “However morally superior
their cause, the allies won the war by superiority in numbers and materials
rather than by superiority in morale.”1
In your thread this week, I want
you to either defend or contest Parker’s conclusion. This is a big question. In
your response, you need to consider and discuss the strategies of nations at
energizing and sustaining the morale of their people, both on the home front
and front lines. Consider also the culture of those nations and the impact they
had on the strategies employed and their effectiveness. You will need to
consider the economic strategies of those nations and discuss how those
decisions and policies contributed to their success or failure in the war, as
well as their prewar economic conditions.
