Episodes of the Cuban Revolutionary War, 1956-58
Pathfinder, 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.

been killed and his body lost, although his weapons were rescued by Camilo. On
our side we also began to hear shots announcing the arrival of the enemy ...
8, which is given this objective, will bear the name of Ciro Redondo, in honor of
the heroic rebel captain killed in action and posthumously promoted to
commander. The "Ciro Redondo" Column no. 8 will leave from Las Mercedes
