8. Churchill and Orwell: The Fight for Freedom (2018)

 Best Orwell Books That Will Hook YouBoth George Orwell and Winston Churchill came close to death in the mid-1930’s—Orwell shot in the neck in a trench line in the Spanish Civil War, and Churchill struck by a car in New York City. If they’d died then, history would scarcely remember them. At the time, Churchill was a politician on the outs, his loyalty to his class and party suspect. Orwell was a mildly successful novelist, to put it generously. No one would have predicted that by the end of the 20th century they would be considered two of the most important people in British history for having the vision and courage to campaign tirelessly, in words and in…

9. Facing Unpleasant Facts (2009)

Author(s): George Orwell, George Packer
