Homage to Catalonia - Lionel Trilling, George Orwell POUM and CNT/FAI members in the Spanish revolution & civil war:

This is an amazing, vivid account of the author's experience as a member of POUM militia in the Spanish civil war & how he came to an anti-totalitarianism, pro-socialism, pro-working class political stance. I really like his sincerity and idealism even though I don't know much about that part of history.
