Why did volunteerism fail in the 1920\'s?

Question asked by: knowitall

The answer is that this was just after the Great War, that is World War I which took place from 1914 to 1918.

Until that time war had been slightly glamourised but after that people realised the true horrors of war and the scars and the death and danger and it really put people off going to war and therefore it was very hard to get volunteers to go in the numbers needed for armies and so on, so that is why it is that volunteerism failed in my opinion in the 1920s.
