Orwell The War Commentaries

Hardcover, New York: Pantheon Books, 1986. First American Edition. Very Good+ in Very Good+ dust jacket. Orwell did a weekly radio broadcast about the state of World War II for the BBC from December, 1941 - February, 1943, the bleakest and most crucial part of the war when the outcome was still very much in doubt. His war commentaries were subject to the pen of the censor. The transcripts of these war commentaries were lost and not found until well after Orwell's death.
