Whats the word that means that someone is forced to participate in war.
It could be drafted or conscripted.
what word would be better to use in a sentence like;
war sepereated families and took children away from their mothers due to ____________.
War separated families and took children away from their mothers by means of the draft.
(The phrasing "due to" is often misused. See #6: http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/plague.htm )
