When men fought in wars, their families (wives, children, significant others, parents, etc.) would be left behind waiting to hear any piece of information to ensure their man's safety.
How would you compare the bravery/strength of the people left behind to those who went into war? Who do you think has to be stronger? Do both sides have to be strong? Maybe different types of strengths?
Both parties,those in war and those left behind

It's hard to compare these two sets of people. I think both of them have to be equally strong. The men had to leave behind their spouses and children, which was difficult to deal with since they did not know when, or if, they would meet them again. Plus, they had to endure the brutal conditions in war. Their families, on the other hand, had to carry on with their lives, while continually worrying about the men's safety.

Being brave is very essential.Both sides had to be strong.The chaos separated people, but those who survived found their way back to normal life.Thanks for this review.
