'hostility' is the definition.
I don't know anything about this answer so I can't tell whether it can be defined by this definition.

'employment struggle after' is the wordplay.
'employment' becomes 'post' (post is a kind of employment).
'struggle' becomes 'war' (warring is a kind of struggling).
'after' says to put letters next to each other.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for post-war that I've seen before include "since conflict" , "Occurring after an armed conflict" , "After 1918 or 1945?" , "Since 1945" , "After, say, 1945" .)

I've seen this clue in The Globe and Mail.
