InterpretationHaving a much smaller population to draw from than the United States, manpower for war production was one of Great Britain's biggest problems dueing World War II. Nevertheless, Great Britain managed to increase production due, in part, to the institution of the National Service Act. This meant that every man and woman in the country was subject to being drafted to work or fight. By 1942, out of a population of 33 million people between the ages of 14 and 65, 22 million were working full-time in industry, the armed forces, or civil defense.
