Homage to Catalonia by George Orwell

Homage to Catalonia is George Orwell‘s personal account of his experiences and observations fighting for the Republican army during the Spanish Civil War. The war was one of the shaping events on his political outlook and a significant part of what led him to write, in 1946, “Every line of serious work that I have written since 1936 has been written, directly or indirectly, against totalitarianism and for Democratic Socialism, as I understand it.” (Wikipedia)

It’s interesting to read the story that inspired such great works as Animal Farm and 1984. And true to the purpose of Knowledge Keepers, it’s a firsthand account of a historic event.
