Episodes of the Cuban Revolutionary War, 1956-58
"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."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
