I remember wrong Orwell never managed to join the International
Brigade he independantly joined the POUM, and was shot in the throat
during the fratricidal infighting in barcelona after he'd applied but
before he could join the fight in madrid, and ended up trying to
escape the whole bloody mess with a much less gung ho and naive
attitude towards the fight against facism.
