One of the most commonly prescribed books for students of English literature has been George Orwell’s Homage to Catalonia. Educational authorities and others present this book, not only as literature, but as the authority on the Spanish Civil War of 1936-39. Is this choice justified? And if not, why is it promoted in this way?
