Homage to Catalonia is George Orwell's personal account of his experiences and observations in the Spanish Civil War. The first edition was published in the United Kingdom in 1938. The book was not published in the United States until February 1952, when it appeared with an influential preface by Lionel Trilling
One of Orwell's lesser-known books and a great read for those interested in modern history, and the rise and fight against Fascism during the 30s. On average, not much is taught about the Spanish Civil War, and this book, even with its biases helps fill in many of the gaps of that period of history. Enjoy!
