Many people died because of them being forced to go to war, and there was a loss in family generations in the sense that many fathers and sons were killed and families were no longer continued. Also, the women's loved ones were gone, their husbands and sons and if the men were off to conscription, many jobs would be unoccupied and there would not be enough men to farm.
