5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Book
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Yes this is a manual. And Che was great. But it's not useful in either of those contexts.
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...

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just a "how to" book, 26 July 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Guerrilla Warfare (Paperback)
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Che's lasting legacy, 26 Feb. 2005

This review is from: Guerrilla Warfare (Paperback)
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.

This review is from: Guerrilla Warfare (Paperback)
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.
