there was a great impact, both socially and economically.

Depending of course on which war you are discussing here, and i am

assuming it is probably one of the world wars, Britain rationed

food, as there wasnt enough to go round, and as so many civilian

houses were destroyed there were many homeless and many orphans, go

to this site http://www.bbc.co.UK/history/war/wwone/ for ww1 and

this http://www.bbc.co.UK/history/war/wwtwo/ for ww2 for more

information.

In the case of WW2 Britain emerged in an economic mess, heavily in

debt and with its empire breaking up. It had played a key role in

winning WW2 but at a very heavy price.

Socially and in terms of domestic policy, there was a sharp

swing to the Left after WW2 with the election of the Attlee

government and the establishment of a welfare state.
