The Second World War affected different countries in different ways both internally and externally. However this extended essay will only be investigating the internal or home front aspects of the Second World War in terms of the economic policies applied in Britain, Germany and Turkey and the research question “To what extend the home front economic policies of Turkey is different or similar to the home front economic policies of England and Germany during the Second World War?” is answered. The reason for the selection of specifically Britain, Germany and Turkey is because of the difference in their ideologies, which lead me to wonder whether the varying ideologies of the countries, affected the home front economic policies. The National Protection Act passed in Turkey was the starting point of this essay because it gave government a vast degree of right over the economy. I searched whether Britain and Germany had similar measures applied during the Second World War and found out that all three countries followed similar internal economic policies since they all faced similar problems. On the other hand some differences occurred due to the differences in their ideologies. These measures, problems and differences in the internal economic policies are examined in this essay in a detailed way. The references used include the Tan nad Ulus which were two of the newspapers published in Turkey during Second World War. I have gone through each Tan and some of the Ulus published in the interval of 1939-1945 in order to find the appropriate news that I could use as the primary sources.
