To my very limited understanding on the issue, war merely keeps the machine moving as a last resort. When the war ends, so do all the benefits that came from it as far as a growing economy is concerned. So, it may buy you some time until you can figure out how to create more industry. If that fails, and you lose the war. . that's it. Collapse.
Actually a world war is best for the economy after it is over. That is for the winners. One of The reasons for the USA’s great economic growth over the past fifty years is the fact that after the war the US was one of the only country’s left with its industry still intact.
a decade of zero growth
