A fine document describing the struggles in seven South American countries, this remains a useful tool in today's world. The Bookwatch This interesting book is more than a mere translation of Che Guevara's handbook on how to be a guerrilla fighter. Rather, the translation of Guevara's historic work, Guerrilla Warfare, and two of his later pieces, 'Guerrilla Warfare: A Method" and "Message to the Tricontinental," are nestled between an informative and well-developed introduction and essays describing the struggles in seven South American countries whose guerrilla movements were inspired by Che Guevara's writings and beliefs... This work is quite useful for anyone who desires to understand the struggles occurring around the world today. Journal Of International Law and Politics Aside from Che's own compelling rhetoric, the case histories demonstrate Che's influence and the application of his analysis in very specific terms... Those who teach courses on the Third World or on the history of Latin America since World War II should welcome this volume. Hispanic American Historical Review Che's insights are just as alive today as they were when he first wrote them down in 1960. Latin America In Books For teaching purposes this volume is extremely worthwhile. The evaluation of guerrilla experiences is on the whole judicious, the prose highly readable, and the package coherent.

Clearly Guevara was the genuine article; a true believer and despite his critics a decent man.
Unlike Castro and his compadres, Guevara refused to live in a palace or stately mansion, preferring to live among the people he had fought for.
A bit of an embarassament no doubt, which probably led to his going to Bolivia where he was actually murdered by the CIA after being captured by
American Rangers. Allegedly betrayed by a Bolivian peasant he went on to become a symbol of defiance that still appeals to young men and women in our 'Decadent' , capitalist, western paradise. Good lesson though, trying to liberate people who don't care about the corruption and injustice in their own country will only get you killed.
Anybody with even a fleeting interest in this great man are advised to read this book.
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.
i started reading che's writings in date order when come to this book i thought it would be the lest interesting but i was shocked at how in depth it is
is a must for any che fan
