Cover of: Homage to Catalonia | George Orwell
About the Book

Homage to Catalonia is George Orwell's account of his experiences fighting in the 'Spanish Civil War'. Alongside many British workers, trades unionists, and socialists keen to help the Spanish defend their Republic from General Franco's Fascist forces. Orwell joined the POUM Militia in the Catalan region of Spain, was injured in the fighting and invalided back to England. After leaving the front line preparatory to leaving Spain, Orwell saw for himself the machinations of the Communist Party leading to the POUM being declared 'Enemies of the People' along with its destruction. Which he expresses in his companion piece the Essay Looking back on the Spanish War. These are fuller descriptions of events culled from direct experience, than many especially current misrepresentations of the Spanish Conflict.
English film director Ken Loach made a landmark film Land and Freedom of the Spanish anti fascist struggle with many similarities to George Orwell's story including that of perspective. The book and film can be appreciated in their own right or as companion pieces.
