Fascinating "inter regnum" opinion piece,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Politics and the English Language (Kindle Edition)
Bought this after a review on Radio 4. It was written after war was declared but before the Fall of France. Therefore it looks back at attitudes to the Nazis in the 30s, how they already seemed dated by events, but before the true horrors of the war had been unleashed (enough cliches !) . Anybody interested in 20th Century politics or history will enjoy this short read. Orwell might come across as a surprisingly "irritated middle aged ex-public schoolboy" in some of it and what he says may now be regarded as obvious (maybe some was then), but that doesn't stop it being worth a read.
