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.

crossed the river to get near the garrison, Fidel told Osorio that military rules

We knew that the garrison had no major defenses apart from some logs scattered
in the immediate vicinity. Its strong points were the guard posts, each with three
or four soldiers and strategically placed around the outside of the garrison.
Overlooking the barracks was a hill from which our general staff would direct the
battle. We were to approach the building through the thickets and station
ourselves a few meters away. We were carefully instructed not to fire on the
outlying buildings ...
