By MRS. HUMPHRY WARD
With a Preface by Joseph H. Choate This inspiring book gives a wonderfully graphic picture of the intense activity of the English people at home in their part of the war :- the vast munitions and equipment industries into which women are pouring by the tens of thousands to take the place of men; the transformed England that has come with the realization of her needs. Mrs. Ward has followed, too, the munitions to the front in France, of which she gives a picture unsurpassed in vividness. The Hon. Joseph H. Choate writes a preface to the book.
