Description - Guerrilla Warfare by Ernesto Guevara
Guerrilla Warfare is Che Guevara's own story of the Cuban revolution. It was written in 1960, just after the 1956-59 revolution and, originally intended as a manual for the other guerrilla movements of Latin America, grew into Che's classic account of the motivations and justifications of revolution. The Cuban revolution against the Batista dictatorship was the first blow against American Imperialism, inspiring decades of resistance to the globalisation that now dominates world politics. This is far from being an instruction guide to founding a guerrilla movement, it is a work that sets out the faith necessary for political action, an evocation of Che's own idealism.

Author Biography - Ernesto Guevara
Che Guevara is the most famous revolutionary icon in the world. He dedicated his life to leading an armed revolt against the poverty and injustice rife in South and Latin America. He fought alongside Fidel Castro in the Cuban Revolution of 1956-59 and became the Rebel Army commander, in this position he started to form the revolutionary ideology and military strategies that are the basis for Guerrilla Warfare. Che left Cuba in 1965 to spread his revolutionary message, fighting in the Congo before returning to Latin America with the intention of sparking a hemisphere-wide guerrilla uprising. He was executed in Bolivia, in 1967.
