Orwell's wryly hilarious essay-slash-travelogue is the perfect precursor to a trip to Catalunya.

In typical Orwellian fashion (see what I did there?) George gives us an entertaining romp through war-torn Spain. George joins up with anarchists, Communists, and a rag-tag band of glorious anti-fascists to fight the good fight. Orwells desciption of Barcelona when he arrives is absolutely brilliant and gives us a view into a part of Spanish culture that thrives today, even as Western influence gains ground.
Did I mention that George gets shot in the neck and is forced to walk an insane distance for medical assistance?
Recommended if you've enjoyed other books by Orwell.
