Tsardom to Communism

1.1 - The effects of the war on the cities

In the cities, what can be said about the effects of the war? They were increasingly felt.
Why were the effects of the war increasingly felt in the cities? There were food shortages, with prices rising by up to 700% over the three years. Workers' wages only increased by 200% during the same period.
Why was food in short supply in the cities during the First World War? Because much good farming land was occupied by the Germans. In some areas there was a shortage of peasants on the land as so many had been conscripted into the armies. Also, transport was inefficiently organised.
Why did transport being inefficiently organised contribute to the shortage of food in the cities during the First World War? How? Engines and trucks would be commandeered for moving troops or supplies,leaving food for the cities rotting in railway sidings. Many railway engineers had been called up to fight,leaving a shortage of people to carry out basic repairs to engines and trucks
