I would assume that if it was not needed they would not have had one.
IMHO, if we did not have a draft for WWI, we would not have had a WWII, because neither side had the resources to continue fighting. WWI would have ended in a truce, had it not been for the USA entering that war. Without the WWI draft they would not have had enough volunteers to win.
