Reminiscences of the Cuban Revolutionary War
on 4 September 2009
`Reminiscences of the Cuban Revolutionary War' is Che Guevara's diary of the Cuban revolution and rather than being a straight narrative, from A-Z, of the war, it is more a collection of episodes that include various battles and other aspects of war logistics. It is written with his unique short, descriptive sentences and you are quickly drawn in to the accounts on offer. The first half is the text from the original book and the second half includes various other articles and accounts he wrote afterwards that flesh out the details. The various battles are exciting to read about and his revolutionary zeal and drive show through on every page. This book also has numerous black and white photos in a middle photo plate section, as well as a comprehensive glossary that list the various combatants and key players on both sides. If you are interested in the Cuban Revolution, or Che, then this is required reading. It shows a side of the war from one man who was intimately involved and it is well written and engaging to boot. Well worth a read.
