Mary Augusta Ward (1851–1920) was a British novelist who wrote under her married name as Mrs. Humphry Ward. She was a significant campaigner against women getting the vote, serving as the founding president of the Women's National Anti-Suffrage League. During World War I, Ward was asked by former United States President Theodore Roosevelt to write a series of articles to explain to Americans what was happening in Britain. Her work involved visiting the trenches on the Western Front, and resulted in three books, England's Effort: Letters to an American Friend (1916), Towards the Goal (1917), and Fields of Victory (1919). This second volume of the series focuses on the British Army and its effort to match the challenges of the war and the military machines against whom and beside whom it fought.
