Ford Madox Ford

Ford Madox Ford (December 17, 1873-June 26, 1939) was a British novelist and editor of The English Review and The Transatlantic Review. He is best known for his novel, The Good Soldier, which is considered one of the best novels of the 20th century. Ford worked in the British War Propaganda Bureau at the beginning of World War I before enlisting and seeing combat in France. Many of his most famous works center around that great conflict. A promoter of literature, he published the works of such authors as H. G. Wells, Joseph Conrad, Henry James, and William Butler Yeats.
