Stifinderen – Øvebogen, Grøn øvelse 9 (s. 29)

When a country is at war, its government has many duties. First of all it is necessary to see to it that the army
gets the weapons it needs, and that the necessary soldiers are drafted.

But the government must also take an interest in the people who produce food and weapons. Without these
articles it is not possible to win a war.

During a war it is often the women who work at the factories, and therefore society must give a good deal
of thought of the situation of the women
 and the families.

In a family where the mother works, and the father is a soldier, financial problems easily arise.

If a family is evicted because the money is gone, and no one has paid the rent, society must  help. For (because) during a war everybody is necessary, and no one is superfluous.

Often child care is also a problem which society must take care of. During World War II many children were consequently sent out into the country.
