Episodes of the Cuban Revolutionary War, 1956-58
Pathfinder, 1 janv. 1996 - 483 pages
Ernesto Che Guevara, Argentine by birth, became a central leader of the Cuban revolution and one of the outstanding communists of the 20th century. This book is his firsthand 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 of the Cuban Revolutionary War appears here complete for the first time in English.

He had gone to carry out some missions in the city and came to report to us, later
returning to continue his work in the cities. (A little later he was taken prisoner.)
We also met Armando Hart, and I had my only opportunity to meet that great
leader from Santiago, Frank Pals. Frank Pais was one of those men who
command respect from the first meeting; he looked more or less as he appears in
the photographs we see today, but his eyes had extraordinary depth. It is difficult
today to speak ...
