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.

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.

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.

A must read for any military men/women, this being the way all future conflicts will be conducted by insurgencies. Especially relevant for guys in the jungle environment.

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.

Simply superb reading and very insightful. As I will be visiting Cuba in December it is very timely.

A very interesting book but not particularly well written or is it a loss in translation.

Very good book, even if you are not thinking of becoming a guerrilla.
