9 November 2013 Equipment losses WWII

Cassi Creek:
WWII was a demonstration of how important industrialization had become in modern warfare.  The bombing campaigns against Germany and Japan were intended to destroy their industrial capacities, rendering them unable to continue fighting effectively.  The effect of urban destruction on the citizens of the targeted nations, while overwhelmingly frightening, was not the primary reason for the bombing campaigns. 
The hardware losses to the combatant nations spiraled upward at such a rate that even the U.S. industrial plants and resources were unable to keep up with the demands for new and replacement weaponry without rationing on the home front.
