The first part of Chapter IV mirrors the international reaction to the young Soviet Union. Orwell recreates the Russian Revolution, and armed with a new ideology and power structure. THe main theme here is the collective strength of the socialist movement. Jones’s attempt to recapture Animal Farm strengthens the bonds between the animals. The animals, small and large, work together to successfully overthrow the humans once more. Of course, the animals do not like the war. At the same time, it strengthens their determination to maintain their freedom and work for the greater good.
