Che's guerilla war

£14.99

Product description

A collectable paperback book...

'On 8 October 1967, less than a year after the beginning of his campaign in Bolivia, Che Guevara was killed by government troops at the gorge of El Yuro. His revolutionary struggle to liberate Latin America was defeated before it had seriously begun, as the guerrillas, cut off from the local population, and hampered by hunger and disease, were unable to fight effectively against the government.

In this book Regis Debray analyses the historical reasons for the failure in the field of one of the world's foremost theorists of guerrilla warfare. He shows that although Che's grandiose strategy for revolution throughout Latin America was intelligent, the tactical details were ill-conceived and out of touch with the actual situation in Bolivia.

Regis Debray was with Che in Bolivia, and his story gives us a useful insight into one of the greatest setbacks the Left has suffered in Latin America.'

Translation published in 1975.
