Book Description

7 Jan 2013
Guerrilla Warfare by the revolutionary Che Guevara has become the guidebook for thousands of guerrilla fighters in various countries around the world. Guevara intended it to be a manual on guerrilla warfare, as inspiration for revolutionary movements in Latin America, Africa and Asia, stressing the need for an underpinning political motivation to guerrilla methods, organisation and supply. Guevara emphasizes that guerrilla warfare is a favorable method against totalitarian regimes, where political opposition and legal civil struggle is impossible to conduct.

[This is an attractive large glossy paperback edition.]

Product Description


A fine document describing the struggles in seven South American countries, this remains a useful tool in today's world. The Bookwatch This interesting book is more than a mere translation of Che Guevara's handbook on how to be a guerrilla fighter. Rather, the translation of Guevara's historic work, Guerrilla Warfare, and two of his later pieces, 'Guerrilla Warfare: A Method" and "Message to the Tricontinental," are nestled between an informative and well-developed introduction and essays describing the struggles in seven South American countries whose guerrilla movements were inspired by Che Guevara's writings and beliefs... This work is quite useful for anyone who desires to understand the struggles occurring around the world today. Journal Of International Law and Politics Aside from Che's own compelling rhetoric, the case histories demonstrate Che's influence and the application of his analysis in very specific terms... Those who teach courses on the Third World or on the history of Latin America since World War II should welcome this volume. Hispanic American Historical Review Che's insights are just as alive today as they were when he first wrote them down in 1960. Latin America In Books For teaching purposes this volume is extremely worthwhile. The evaluation of guerrilla experiences is on the whole judicious, the prose highly readable, and the package coherent. Journal of Latin American Studies --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just a "how to" book 26 July 1999
By A Customer
Most people feel the need to regard this book as an instruction manual. It was intended as such, but as a mature reader, one should take the context into account. This book embodies the spirit of a courageous warrior who's attributes all of us wish we had. This book is recomended not just for those aspiring to revolt against their oppressors, but those who wish to learn of the ideals of one of the greatest men ever born.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Book 20 Mar 2013
By Bill
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is a great book, it gives the reader an idea of how Che used to think and operate. It also gives you an idea of how they won the war in cuba because he refers to the cuban revolution throughout the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Che's lasting legacy 26 Feb 2005
In this book, the legendary 'Che' Guevara offers an insight into his preferred methods of guerilla warfare. The man has become without doubt one of the most recognised figures of the 20th Century, and it is books like these that are his legacy, not the legions of students parading in t-shirts emblazoned with his face.
Anybody with even a fleeting interest in this great man are advised to read this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars HASTA LA VICTORIA SIEMPRE! 16 Oct 1998
By A Customer
This book gives us the manual needed for revloution. Che hits home with his candid ideas about guerrilla warfare. The case studies that the editors added to this version help to show that the conditions that Che spoke about in Latin America 40 years ago, still exist and that the time for another revolution could be near.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Good! 2 Jan 2010
This is a first class manual on the purpose, formation and management of guerrilla warfare. Interestingly, some of the principles, organisational tactics and strategies talked about here, could also be applied to business and guerrilla marketing/advertising; however, this was obviously not the intention of this book, and is just my own business person opinion. Never the less, this is a really good book!

Study information, very useful
Published 2 months ago by EEZYEYES
3.0 out of 5 stars Yes this is a manual. And Che was great. But it's not useful in either...
I suspect this book was born out of the need to educate the clueless campesinos, in the Sierra Maestra and beyond, when a quick introduction to guerrilla warfare was required. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff. Had a different cover to this picture though.
Can't really remember the book as I bought it years ago but it proper helped me with my coursework about Che Guevara and that. Good book, still got it somewhere round here.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good read but not the whole story.
This is a great book but not the whole story. I think it needed more balance. Che is portrayed(always by the media) as a great guy, honest and fair. Read more
