Postwar reconstruction describes the planning and execution of rebuilding efforts following an armed conflict. Often times, the "losing" side in a war will find its country in a state of acute disarray, from the governmental leadership, to the industrial infrastructure, to the status of public health. Sometimes, the "victorious" combatant will assist the defeated combatant with the reconstruction process, as was the case with the United States during World War II and the ravaged states of Germany and Japan.
