Description

Passionately opposed to fascism, British author George Orwell served as an soldier in the militia for the POUM-the Worker's Party of Marxist Unification, one of the parties involved in the Spanish Civil War-from 1936-1937. Serving on the frontlines, Orwell saw action in Catalonia and Aragon, and was seriously wounded by a sniper in May 1937. At the same time that Orwell was recovering from his injuries, the POUM was declared illegal and Orwell was forced to flee Spain in order to avoid arrest. In Homage to Catalonia, Orwell frankly recounts his experiences as a soldier, revealing his passionate commitment to the ideals of communism and his equally passionate opposition to fascism. Be it mystery, romance, drama, comedy, politics, or history, great literature stands the test of time.
