When we think of tools of warfare, we tend to think of spears, guns and other types of militaristic weaponry. But throughout history, food has often been a critical component of war — inspiring conflict and, in some cases, delivering victory. War and peace? More like war and peas.
We’ve created a quiz to test your knowledge of just a few examples of how the history of food and war are intermingled. Can you defeat the questions?
If the quiz doesn’t work for you here, you can click this link.
