ORWELL'S TRIBUNE WAR WRITINGS

During the years between the time he quit the BBC in November 1943 to the time he retired from journalism to move to Jura to write "1984" Orwell wrote a weekly AS I PLEASE column for the Tribune newspaper.

The following excerpts, taken from a selection of his seventy-five columns, express Orwell's thoughts on various aspects of WWII. Discerning readers will recognize that the ideas expressed are applicable to present-day wars wherein truth is the first - of many - victims. ~ Jackie Jura
