Episodes of the Cuban Revolutionary War, 1956-58
Pathfinder, 1996 - 483 pages
A first hand account of the military campaigns and political events that culminated in the January 1959 popular insurrection that overthrew the U.S.-backed dictatorship in Cuba. With clarity and humor, Guevara describes his own political education. He explains how the struggle transformed the men and women of the Rebel Army and July 26 Movement led by Fidel Castro. And how these combatants forged a political leadership capable of guiding millions of workers and peasants to open the socialist revolution in the Americas. Guevara's Episodes appears here complete for the first time in English.

the fate of ...
The enemy post, well protected by a wooden palisade, fired automatic and
semiautomatic rifles, devastating our small troop. Almeida ordered a final assault
in which he would attempt by any means to eliminate the enemy resistance he
faced; Silleros, Maceo, Hermes Leyva, Pena, and Almeida himself were
wounded (the latter in the shoulder and left leg), and Comrade Moll was killed.
Nevertheless, this push forward overcame the guard post, and a path to the
barracks was opened.
