Wars are very expensive and consume a lot of resources. That is especially true of desperate, total wars such as WW II. During WW II there were shortages of food, fuel, and other basic goods. In times of shortage, some people will buy up as much as they can, and hoard their purchases out of fear of running out, but that only makes the supplies run out faster for other people, and is not fair. So to avoid that problem, people were only allowed to buy a set amount of food and fuel. Ration books were used to keep track of how much any given person bought, and to prevent them from buying too much.

the British and US governments both issued ration books during WWII. they did this in Britain because Britain largely imported much of the "the necessities"(including but not limited to: sugar, tea, oil, wood, and produce). After WWII began, the Germans diseverly cut the amount of supplies reaching Britain by attacking the ships that carried them. In order to make sure that there was enough to go around, the British Government issued ration books(for more in fo about ration books in Britain, see what were ration books) in the US, ration books were issued so that the government could provide enough supplies to its soldiers. It was all to support the war effort.
