The correct answer is C) the destruction of Georgia would be so complete that it would break the Confederacy's will to continue fighting.

The BEST reasoning behind William T. Sherman's strategy of using "total war " to defeat the south was "the destruction of Georgia would be so complete that it would break the Confederacy's will to continue fighting."

That was his goal with the Total War. The Union had to win the war at any cost, so he decided to led his troops in November 1864 from Atlanta to Savanah, Georgia. It was an army of approximately 60,000 soldiers. Sherman wanted to create fear in the people of Georgia, so he and his men steal food and burned crops to force the people to stop supporting the Confederates. With this total war concept, Georgia was completely destroyed and indeed the people from the state were afraid.

The other options of the question were A) the strategy of "total war " was needed to stop the confederates from trading with France and England. B) Sherman's men wanted revenge from the horrifying treatment of Union soldiers in Andersonville prison camp. D) the invasion of Georgia would lead to an armed revolt by the slaves, which in turn would help the Union to win the war.

Why did Japan need to rebuild its economy following world war 2

 Japan had already developed to a high level in heavy manufacturing, steel making, ship building, heavy chemicals and vehicle manufacturing prior to WW2 based on a policy of a partnership between business and government with a high degree of government direction and assistance with investment. With the destruction by bombing of much of Japans industrial infrastructure the Japanese took the opportunity to invest in new state of the art manufacturing facilities. As a result Japan spent a higher percentage of its GDP on investment than countries like the US and the UK and Japanese consumers accepted that sacrifices had to be made in the medium term to rebuild the economy and accepted a lower standard of living in the years following the war. A system of training and apprenticeships in industry was also highly developed and the university system had close links to industry to provide the correct level of trained management personnel. The Japanese system of a 'job for life' plus a comprehensive structured system of training and development of managers ensured that knowledge was developed and transmitted in a way superior to that in Western companies. In a large Japanese company a manager will do a 3 year stint in a particular position at home or abroad and receive close training and monitoring by his immediate manager who he will probably take over from. The result of this system is that 3 levels of management have a detailed knowledge of the job etc at any one time. In the West managers move between companies a lot more leading to a loss of accumulated knowledge to that company.
