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 last book of the series focuses on the part that the British Armies in France played, in combination with those of France and the US, in the fighting of the final year of the war.
