Homage to Catalonia Hardback

Part of the Macmillan Collector's Library series

Hardback

Description

Homage to Catalonia remains one of the most famous accounts of the Spanish Civil War.

With characteristic scrutiny, Orwell questions the actions and motives of all sides whilst retaining his firm beliefs in human courage and the need for radical social change. Part of the Macmillan Collector's Library; a series of stunning, clothbound, pocket sized classics with gold foiled edges and ribbon markers.

These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover.

This edition is introduced by Helen Graham, a leading historian on the Spanish Civil War. When George Orwell arrived in Spain in 1936, he signed up to fight with the Republican army against Fascism.

Homage to Catalonia is his bracing personal account of his experiences in the Spanish Civil War.

From the front line he describes, with brutal honesty, the frustrations and inefficiencies of battle; he is caught up in vicious street fighting in Barcelona and must flee for his life when Republican factions turn on each other.
