At a minimum, it should be required background for any class in which Animal Farm or 1984 are taught. I'm quite serious.
Orwell's first-hand experiences in the Spanish Civil War, and the in-fighting on the Loyalist side, led him to form the views of the man who wrote the more famous works of fiction. However, those who read only Orwell's fiction tend to see only a condemnation of Communism (which is, at least in this country, too readily equated with socalism). They go away with a completely distorted view of the meaning of those stories, and of Orwell's perception on life.
Homage to Catalonia is the truth behind the fiction. Read it.

I respect George Orwell as a man who wrote what he perceived to be the truth even when it hurt his cause to do so. This book is a prime example. In it Mr. Orwell lays clear the effort of the left in Spain to win its civil war with Franco and why it failed. Since Orwell served as a soldier on the side of the "Republic" he can explain the nature of the forces, battles and their morale. What he portrays is a situation where the COMINTERN, under Stalin's direction, seized control of the political leadership of the Republic and destroyed the movement from within by its purges and demand of ideological purity (hard to comply with when the ideology changes monthly). Stalin fought it as an internal political struggle against "Trotskyites" rather than a democratic-socialist revolution. Orwell was a democratic-socialist and placed his emphasis on the democratic side of the equation. As a result, he loathed Stalin and his actions as nothing more than fascism dressed in the robes of socialism - hence, Animal Farm. Orwell is an easy man to like as Florence King pointed out, "he is every liberal's favorite conservative and every conservative's favorite liberal."

Every time that I read something by Orwell I am struck by what a magnificent writer he is, and by what an honest and generous man he must have been. Everything that Orwell wrote is worth reading, and this book might well be his best.
Orwell is a master of expository prose. His writing is very richly descriptive and yet stark, simple, and lucid. For instance, he writes of his first exposure to battle in Spain: "We were near the front line now, near enough to smell the characteristic smell of war - in my experience a smell of excrement and decaying food."
Orwell was the best kind of socialist: a generous man genuinely concerned about equality and about ending the exploitation of the poor. And unlike most other left-wing intellectuals of his time, he was not content to write pamphlets from the confort of peace and affluence, nor did he ever allow his politics to blind him to the reality of how the ideals of socialism were betrayed by the ambition and pettiness of many of those who put it into practice.

Although the book published the year before this one, _The Road to Wigan Pier_, is a more in-depth gauge of Orwell's politics, I still feel closer to _Homage to Catalonia_, a truly fascinating account of his months in the Spanish Civil War and an unwitting allegory for right vs. left, freedom vs. slavery, and other "big ideas."

It was with this book that I realized that Orwell was more than the apparently cynical curmudgeon who wrote _Animal Farm_ and _1984_. In fact, he was even more than an important political thinker. In all his writings, but especially _Homage to Catalonia_, one gets a sense of complete honesty and decency, completely unfeigned, that is impossible not to admire. His unflinching portrayal of all that was good and bad in revolutionary Spain makes this book one of those rare documents that can give you a slightly different way of looking a the world. I don't mean a conversion to radical socialism, but a sense that there is genuine wisdom in Orwell's uncomplicated, sincere way of looking at the world. His style, for me, disarms the most clever intellectual sophistry of those who are really nothing more than overeducated windbags.

I don't always agree with Orwell, and I don't think he was by any mans the smartest Brit of the century. But I always admire what he says, and the way he says it, right or wrong.

In a word: invaluable.

i did not expect such a personal review of the facts. I expected something deeper about the history. There are many questions about it which remain open, just talking about the experience of GO himself.

A book which is greatly inspiring. Reading may lead you to think what kind of pussy one is themselfs. it teaches how to encourage yourself and others to stand up for a greater cause, even when it's hard to make a difference. Orwell is a rolemodel for a civilian and human being that has nothing to regret. Slightly too long in several parts and not that lyrically beautiful as many say (maybe cause im not an english native). I wonder how Orwell would look upon Europe as it is shaped today. Especially the end of the book leaves one in the sad feeling of the historical future that was awaiting the brave fighter. Above all a great book which is necessary to know when talking about 1984.
