Describe two examples of the increased power of the state during World War One (4)

'Describe' questions are looking for historical, contextual, knowledge - tailored specifically to the question.For example the examiner will have hundreds of papers to mark and they are looking for specific answers that they can put a tick next to - in this case the two examples are Conscription and The Defence of the Realm Act. However mentioning them will only give you two out of four - the other two marks come from the description.'An example fo the increased power of the state during the First World War was the introduction of Conscription (1 mark), thus allowing the state to significantly bolster its armed forces with men of appropriate age and fitness." (2 marks). The second example of the state increasing its power is through the Defence of the Realm Act (DORA) (1 mark), this effectively gave the government the right to (temporarily) nationalise industries that were crucial to the war effort (munitions, engineering etc).' (2 Marks)
