More About the Author
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--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

With all this statement, he was who first established the social ideological operational theoretic basis of the Spanish-American guerrilla warfare. Afterwards Guevara developed, with more scientific than doctrinaire aspirations, its military guerrillas lived ideology. It was wrote in his "Guerrilla Warfare" book. He centered it on two postulates. That he was claiming the Cuban guerrilla warfare had absolutely (undoubtedly and without variation) demonstrated in practice. "The popular forces can win a war against the Army" Indeed, this has happened in other occasions. "Not always it is necessary to wait that all the conditions for the revolution are present. (He was thinking in Mao's theory of protracted warfare). The rebel revolutionary focus can create and develop them". His tragic end in Bolivia, where he lived as a "wandering irregular rebel", without supporting popular bases, would give the "relative, local character, questionable, particular and conditioned" real measure of his military theory "discovery".Read more ›
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.
Anybody with even a fleeting interest in this great man are advised to read this book.
