World Warfare Administration 101

Posted by



Ever puzzled what you have to think about in a complete conflict? Nicely, here’s a small concept on just a few issues that concern strategic sources, manpower, key fuels …

Constructive Criticism (or an attempt thereof):I found the pace that text was "revealed" frustrating. Or rather, each word. The pace that the full text was presented was fine, but I found myself wanting each word to be revealed in full as fast, or faster, than they were spoken.I don't know what technique you're using to present the text like you do now, or how changing it might increase your technical workload. But could you perhaps experiment with ways of presenting each word in full faster.It might seem "nittpicky", but I find myself almost wanting to close my eyes and wait… Read more »

this video reminds me of a motto from one logistic battalion in my country…..

"logistic wont makes us win the war, but without logistic our defeats is sure."

more or less its translated like that

this video explains why war is despised all over the world. the shortage of resources, threat to life and property, losing loved ones, national pride at stake and the uncertainty.

Well done! You should do even more videos where you discuss things that affect military but are not mentioned oftenly!

I keep thinking about these lucky guys that got sent back to industry away from the horrid Western Front.

Very valuable video. Only thing I'd critic is the occasional blue text on red background 😮

During WWII my Great-Grandfather and Grandfather had a farm in Nebraska, they grew sugar beets for the war. They also had German POWs work in the fields.

Pfft… Coal is old? Majority of our electricity is generated by coal. The most dirtiest type of fuel and we use it the most. The USSR managed despite their farmlands literally ran over by the Germans is because… they are the one being invaded which is quite the motivation. And I guess they just really wanted food and the only way to get it is to well… reclaim their farmlands.Also I'm kind of surprised at the industrial injuries but at the same time I shouldn't. in 1900, US had 35,000 deaths and 1 million injuries of all type because of… Read more »

The 86,000 US factory deaths were in excess of the expected peacetime industrial accidental deaths?

A point about coal is the work of the Bevin Boys in Britain during the Second World War. Essentially conscripts who were sent to the coal mines instead of the front line from 1943 to 1948 in order to provide for the war effort. A vital role, but mocked by the civilian populace due to perceived cowardice and hated by the private miners as they had better safety equipment and guaranteed pay at the end of the day, even if the mine was closed (miners were paid by amount mined). When the government is putting potential soldiers into government backed… Read more »

All wrong. What you have to do is focus all population on production for 5 turns untill you get a library and then research all techs in the top of the tech tree untill you get universities. After that you should get a good enough tech boost and when you get nukes you should start building paratroopers and only paratroopers and nukes. Declare war on every nation, use nukes and then send x-coms or paratroopers to capture the cities. For an easier win either go Order or Autocracy since they give the best military boosts.

Report of the 15.Infanteriedivision from 1942:"The replacements come from the industry rich regions of central germany and are in consquence of their insufficient nutrition physically weak and capable of only limited exertion. Training had to take account of that fact." http://www.15id.info/Auffrischung.htm

Constructive comment: the animation from 2:24 to 2:25 where the workers become soldiers is especially nicely made! Well done!

Hey Military History Visualized, for the US factory worker death and injuries rate, could you include statistics of 4 years before and 4 years after the war, if available? If their was a standard base rate, then we can compare it to the wartime rate, otherwise it doesnt mean as much. And yeah, because more people were working in factories from '41 to '45 compared to the '36 to '40 years, you'll have to adjust the casulties numbers to percentages of the total factory work force per year.

Thanks and keep up the good work.

Thank you for researching this subject and producing this video. These aspects of warfare are generally ignored, even though the entire war effort is based on them. Presumably, these problems were even more severe during earlier eras, such as the Napoleonic Wars.

Well. That was an interesting topic. I would like to see one about how germany mobiliced 17 million men in WW2 and how many workers were left for the industry.

I'm assuming the statistics for "industrial accidents" don't include losses in the merchant marine?

Similarly, were there cases where fishing trawlers were targeted during World War II?

Last of all, in which industries did these deaths occur? Mining seems like a good candidate. But 86,000 people is just a huge number, even for the United States. Some of these deaths must have been in larger incidents with 10 or more fatalities, but I don't ever remember reading about such an accident.

It seems to me this topic of wartime industrial accidents would be worthy of an entire video just in itself.

Factory losses in the USSR were no problem; except for foreign agents and saboteurs, who deliberately killed or dismembered themselves to aid the enemy.

I'd love to see a video explaining why so many people were so sure that these wars would end so quickly, and end up being oh so wrong.
