The Poulbot drawing of the week deals with hunger. Whereas France and Great Britain produced adequate food domestically and imports until mid-1917, when the U-boat campaign began to affect food imports. On the other hand, Germany experienced hunger winters because the British blockade severely affected the availability of food (and the shortage of fertilizer resulted in a sharp decline in agricultural productivity). Moreover, because German officials focused primarily on industrial production, less attention was given to the needs of agricultural sector.
