Fields of Victory by Mrs Humphry Ward | Project Gutenberg

Access this resource

‘It is a bold thing … to offer the public … yet more letters … especially at a moment when impressions are changing so fast, when the old forms of writing about the war seem naturally out of date, or even distasteful, and the new are not yet born. Yet perhaps in this intermediate period, the impressions of one who made two journeys over some of the same ground in 1916 and 1917, while the great struggle was at its height, and on this third occasion found herself on the Western front just two months after the Armistice, may not be unwelcome …’ Impressions in the form of letters, by Mrs Humphry [Mary Augusta] Ward, British novelist.
