              The last diary of revolutionary Che Guevara with entries up until two days before his murder. Here is Ernesto Che Guevara's account of the 1966-67 guerrilla struggle in Bolivia. A day-by-day chronicle of the campaign led by one of the central leaders of the Cuban revolution to fo...rge a revolutionary movement of workers and peasants capable of contending for power in Bolivia and providing an example for all Latin America. --Midwest Book Review Thanks to Che's invariable habit of noting the main events of each day, we have rigorously exact, priceless and detailed information on the heroic final months of his life in Bolivia. --Fidel Castro I turned 39 today and am inevitably approaching the age when I need to consider my future as a guerrilla. But for now, I am still in one piece. --Che Guevara, June 14, 1967 This new edition of Che Guevara's diary of the last year of his life describes Che's efforts to launch a guerrilla insurrection against the military government of Bolivia. It was found in his backpack when he was captured by the Bolivian Army in October 1967. Newly revised, it includes Fidel Castro's A Necessary Introduction, exposing the lies of an earlier, pre-emptive edition prepared by the C.I.A. to discredit Che and the Bolivian expedition, as well as the Cuban Revolution itself. The Bolivian Diary reveals an older, more time-tested, and health-compromised Che than either the exuberant The Motorcycle Diaries or the mature and implacable Congo Diary. There is rich irony here as he recounts the daily challenges faced by his small guerrilla band, the pronouncements of the military government, and the actions of the large military force attacking them. The last entry describes the day before Che's capture, two days before his murder.

              The journal of a young Argentine's second trip through Latin America, revealing the emergence of a committed revolutionary now known as Che. This sequel to The Motorcycle Diaries includes letters, poetry, and journalism that document young Ernesto Guevara's second Latin American ...journey following his graduation from medical school in 1953. It reveals how the young Argentine is transformed into a militant revolutionary, ready to commit himself to the guerrilla struggle Fidel Castro and his companeros are about to launch in Cuba against the dictatorship of General Fulgencio Batista. After traveling through Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, and Central America, Ernesto witnesses the 1954 US-inspired coup in Guatemala, which has a profound effect on his political awareness. He flees to Mexico where he encounters Fidel Castro, marking the beginning of a political partnership that profoundly changes the world and Che himself. Includes a foreword by Alberto Granado, Che's companion on his first adventures in Latin America on a vintage Norton motorcycle, and features poems written by young Ernesto inspired by his experiences along with facsimiles of pages from his diary.

              Che's indelible account of the Cuban revolutionary war, the source of Che: Part 1, the 2008 film by Steven Soderbergh, starring Benicio del Toro After a long pre-history, the actual Cuban revolutionary war itself only lasted, incredibly, a little over two years, from Dec 2, 1956,... to January 1, 1959--from the disastrous first battle, in which three-quarters of the expeditionary force of 82 revolutionaries that traveled to Cuba on the Granma were killed, to total victory at the beginning of January 1959. And there is no better account of the war than this little book by guerilla leader Che Guevara, assembled by Che from his campaign diary, first published in 1963, later corrected and edited by Che, and published here finally in an authoritative edition that not only includes Che's corrections, but also, in Part 2 a number of short essays and articles published by Che in those early years after the revolution's triumph. As always, Che's writing is intimate, searching, and self-critical. Written, like The Motorcycle Diaries, mostly in diary form, Reminiscences is more distinctive, refined in style as his daughter Aleida Guevara notes in her foreword, but still with Che's early sparkle and dynamism. Having initially joined the Cuban expedition as troop doctor, Che describes his dilemma in having to choose between a backpack of medicines and a box of ammunition (he chose the box of ammunition). Within months, he is promoted to guerrilla commander. In another justly famous chapter of the book, The Murdered Puppy, Che describes how he had to give the order to have a puppy killed. Throughout Reminiscences, the sweep of history and matters of life and death are rendered in small and intimate ways. Originally published as a series of articles for Cuban papers, this thoroughly updated edition includes, for the first time, corrections made by Che himself to the first published edition, a foreword by Che's daughter Aleida Guevara, and 32 pages of photos and maps of the guerrilla

              First published in 1961, following the successful Cuban Revolution, this is Che Guevara's handbook for guerrilla war. Che considered that the Cuban Revolution taught would-be insurrectionists three fundamental lessons: (1) Popular forces can win a war against the army. (2) It is ...not necessary to wait until all conditions for making revolution exist; the insurrection can create them. (3) In underdeveloped South America the countryside is the basic area for armed fighting. Covering guerrilla strategy, tactics, terrain, organization of an army, logistics, the role of women, field medical treatment, intelligence, propaganda and training, this is the key text to understand how revolutions can be fought and won by ordinary people.

              Che's diary of his revolutionary struggle in Congo alongside Cuban guerrillas. Features an introduction by Gabriel Garcia Marquez and a Foreword by Aleida Guevara March. Che Guevara's feats in our continent were of such magnitude that no prison or censorship could hide them from ...us. His life is an inspiration for every human being who loves freedom. --Nelson Mandela Che Guevara at the prime of his life and the height of his fame, went off to fight in the Congo. In that fleeting, anonymous passage through Africa, Che Guevara was to sow a seed that no one will destroy. --Gabriel Garcia Marquez In April 1965, Che Guevara set out clandestinely from Havana to Congo to head a force of some 200 veteran Cuban soldiers to assist the African liberation movement against Belgian colonialists, four years after the assassination of the democratically elected socialist president of Congo, Patrice Lumumba. Because this diary deals with what Che admits was a failure, he examines every painful detail about what went wrong in order to draw constructive lessons for planned future guerrilla movements. Unique among his books, Congo Diary gives us Che's brutal honesty and his story-telling ability as he recounts this fascinating episode of guerrilla warfare unblinkingly and without sugar coating or jargon. Considered by some to be Che's best book, it is also one of the few that he had a chance to edit for publication after writing it.

              Ernesto Che Guevara was a voyager--and thus a letter writer--for his entire adult life. The letters collected here range from letters home during his Motorcycle Diaries trip, to the long letter to Fidel after the success of the Cuban revolution in early 1959, from the most person...al to the intensely political, revealing someone who not only thought deeply about everything he encountered, but for whom the process of social transformation was a constant companion from his youth until shortly before his death. His letters give us Che the son, the friend, the lover, the guerilla fighter, the political leader, the philosopher, the poet. Che in these letters is often playful, funny, sometimes sarcastic, and deeply affectionate. His life was short, and these twenty years, from when he was 19 until days before his death, show it was also incredibly rich and full. As his daughter Aleida Guevara, also a doctor like her father, writes , When you write a speech, you pay attention to the language, the punctuation and so on. But in a letter to a friend or a member of your family, you don't worry about those things. It is you speaking, in your authentic voice. That's what I like about these letters; they show who Che really was and how he thought. This is the true political testimony of my father.

              In 1967 Che Guevara left Cuba to lead the Bolivian Liberation Army. In the jungles of Bolivia they attempted to initiate a revolution like that in Cuba, in which Che had played such a central role. The opposing Bolivian Army was backed by the CIA, and Che and his men fought brave...ly in the jungle of Bolivia, with Che keeping the spirits of his men up and contending with logistical and supply difficulties, keeping the revolutionary fervour in his heart even as he notes the days of his childrens' birthdays passing. Che Guevara was executed by the Bolivian Army on 8th October 1967. The notes smuggled out of his backpack back to Cuba make up this notebook, the last record of a man who truly changed the world.
