War Fare

It unites us, divides us and is one of the most effective weapons in war: the control (and cooking) of food. The National WWI Museum and Memorial addresses an often overlooked aspect of the war: food.

In addition to reviewing the effects of food on World War I, War Fare: From the Homefront to the Frontlines includes photographs, comments and even delicious vintage recipes updated for the modern era.
