5.0 out of 5 stars A truly trotskyist revolutionary in the facade of communism, 13 Sept. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: The African Dream (Paperback)
Che was a trotskyist no matter what people say, from his critique of the soviet economy to his disgust of the wealth of soviet beuracratic caste. This book is masterpiece of self critiscism and showss us how Che's own formulated theory of guerrilla wagrfare will not work without the key ingredients of dedicated revolutionaries, the right amount of political education of the soldiers and the importance of being able to speak the language and the importance of not taking advantge of the peasantry who so often will supply the rural guerrilla movement until it is self sufficient. This book shows how everyone makes mistakes even people who are put on a pedestal and used as icons, that through self-critiscism we can become better revolutionaries and better people. It is just a shame Che never faced up to the fact that precise planning is needed before the leader of a revolution goes into battle, something he should have learned from Fidel, also from Trotsky himself who led the Russian Civil War although reading Trotsky would have been very hard for him ( getting hold of it).
