This chapter looks at the history of alcohol during the First World War. Growing concerns about alcohol crystallized under the pressure of extended military conflict, and many governments introduced regulations that were unprecedented in their rigor and extent. Although many of these policies were adopted as emergency wartime measures, they were largely maintained and even intensified long after the conflict ended. The period between the world wars saw temperance and prohibition policies extended throughout the Western world.
