it was amazing

A great examination of warfare. I read this book I don't know when but I remember a few anecdotes. Orwell describes how, whilst fighting on the front line, he couldn't bring himself to shoot a distant Fascist soldier because he had his trousers round his ankles, evidently having been urgently summoned from some prior business. Orwell also talks about how, when one is in the midst of an historical event, it never seems so at the time.
