Product Description

Review

Praise for ‘Guerrilla Warfare’:

'Che's political testament…a manifesto for revolutionary idealists.' Observer

‘An incredible opportunity to see inside the mind of a revolutionary and learn not just why he fought but how.’ Leeds Guide

‘In “Guerrilla Warfare” we find the idealism that made Che an icon decades after his death and an inspiration.’ Buzz magazine

Praise for ‘The Motorcycle Diaries’:

‘It’s true: Marxists just wanna have fun.’ Guardian

'What distinguishes these diaries is that they reveal a human side to El Che which historians have successfully managed to suppress…one senses El Che's belief that determination and conviction can be enough to change one's self and others…a joy to read from start to finish.' Financial Times

'Political incorrectness galore…his book should do much to humanise the image of a man who found his apotheosis as a late Sixties cultural icon. It is also, incidentally, a remarkably good travel book about South America.' Scotsman

'Politically-correct revolutionary hero? Perhaps a few years later, but in this account Che Guevara comes over as one of the lads.' Bike News

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.

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. Thus it is a manual, albeit a short one.
So if you soon intend to pack your bags with revolutionary intentions, you may want to consider finding something with a little more depth, lest you find yourself out of yours.

Indeed the devoted disciples will cry "Nay!". Yes this book has most certainly later been refined to reflect his own experiences and does ameliorate ones knowledge of his life, but only in minute fashion. However if you are interested in Che, you are only a few clicks away from the impeccable "Che: A Revolutionary Life" whence you may pack that "iconic" t-shirt away, as the man himself would most certainly not approve.

Guerrilla Warfare is a short and arguably worthwhile read, but life is equally terse and there are better books to be bothered with.

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.

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.

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.

The book it self is fine but this edition is awful. It is full of typos and the text is printed on huge pages meaning the book has an awkward size.
