The War on All Fronts: England’s Effort by Mrs Humphry Ward | Project Gutenberg

Access this resource

Propaganda piece designed to win sympathy for the Allies from an American audience, presented as a series of letters (seven in total) from Mrs Humphry [Mary Augusta] Ward, English novelist, to an American correspondent. With introduction by American lawyer Joseph Hodges Choate, a critic of American neutrality from the outbreak of the war.

‘”Has England done all she could?” That is the question which Mrs Ward, replying to some doubts and queries of an American friend, has undertaken to answer in this series of letters, and every one who reads them will admit that her answer is as complete and triumphant as it is thrilling.’
