WWI was considered a total war where the entire nation participated in the war efforts. They did this by having the production business adapt to the changing times and produce tanks instead of cars. Other ways the citizens helped the effort was by growing "victory gardens" which conserved the amount of food that was needed, another idea that went along with conserving was no meat wednesdays.
