Best Answer

Wars affected families back at home because they many times had to go without all the necessities they needed. For example, they had to give up some of their clothes to make jackets or other clothes for the soldiers. They also had to go easy on the amount of food they ate because the soldiers needed food. And, obviously, they missed their family members and friends that went to war. Plus, if an army was passing by someone's house and they needed a place to stay, that family HAD to let the soldiers in their house and feed them for however long need be. Even the people that weren't in the war were just as ready, if not more, for the war to be over than the soldiers themselves.
