Item description for Reminiscences of the Cuban Revolutionary War: Authorized Edition (Che Guevara Publishing Project) by Ernesto Guevara & Aleida Guevara...

"Reflects the life of an extraordinary and important man."-Library Journal

"When Che Guevara cast his lot with Marxism and revolution the world of letters suffered an incalculable loss. Guevara is a brilliant, thoughtful writer. He is lucid, candid and revealing."-The Cleveland Press

The dramatic art and acute perceptiveness evident in Che Guevara's early diaries fully blossom in this highly readable and often entertaining account of the guerrilla war that led to the 1959 Cuban Revolution. Reminiscences is one of the two books for Steven Soderbergh's biopic (along with The Bolivian Diary).

Feature chapters describe Che's first meeting with Fidel in Mexico, the mythical moment when Che had to choose between a knapsack of medicine and another of ammunition, and the anguished story of the murdered puppy.

This new, thoroughly revised edition includes for the first time corrections made to the diary by Che himself and a preface by his daughter Aleida about how her parents met in the midst of the revolutionary war.

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! La historia de la muerte del Che y su mitificaci n tiene todos los ingredientes de una saga moderna. Giangiacomo Feltrinelli, el editor de su Diario y art fice de una campa a medi tica para promover su imagen, estaba en Bolivia durante el periodo final de la guerrilla y poco antes de que el Che fuese ejecutado pas por Cuba buscando im genes suyas. Korda, el autor de la foto m s difundida del siglo xx, ten a unas copias de dicha imagen hecha unos a os antes y las cedi a Feltrinelli sin saber que su foto era una obra maestra que calar a muy hondo en el imaginario colectivo. Tras la muerte del Che y la llegada a Cuba de una copia de su Diario, Fidel Castro y Feltrinelli publicaron el libro y llenaron el mundo de carteles con su imagen. Por su parte, el artista irland s Jim Fitzpatrick dise una versi n pop de la c lebre imagen para la revista Scene que fue rechazada por esta tras considerarla demasiado radical. Entonces Fitzpatrick envi la imagen a la revista sat rica Private Eye y esta la hizo llegar al cr tico de arte Peter Meyer, quien invit a Fitzpatrick a participar en una exposici n titulada Viva Che!, anunciada con bombo y platillo en OZ, la revista por excelencia de la psicodelia setentera.

Reviews - What do customers think about Reminiscences of the Cuban Revolutionary War: Authorized Edition (Che Guevara Publishing Project)?

Enlightening  Jun 4, 2006
Che goes through memories of the Revolutionary War in Cuba. His writing style is engaging and interesting.
An amazing story  Jan 18, 2004
This book is great for getting a bird's eye of the Cuban Revolution from an individual perspective. Guevara is meticulous in his notation of events and people. This is not the book to read if you are looking for a general study of the Revolution. Guevara does speak of Castro and Cienfuegos among others but this is Guevara's story. What most impressed me was his honesty about his men, his mistakes, and the conditions under which the Revolution occured. The bugs, the heat, the lack of food, the support from the residents of the Sierra Maestro are so well described that you truly get a sense of what the experience must have been like. Don't pass this book up.
Compelling and instructive  Jul 29, 1999
This collection of memories conveys the excitement, zeal, possibilities, problems and limitations of Guevara's "guerilla warfare" strategy as it was practiced in the Sierra Maestra. At times, one can almost hear Guevara wheezing as he traverses the rugged terrain. It is, in general, light on ideological substance and heavy on battlefield drama. A classic nonetheless...
The Revolution through Che's eyes  Oct 16, 1998
This first hand account of the Cuban Revolution through the eyes of Che give the reader the feeling and emotion that Che felt as he wrote these words. We can see and feel the emotion from his words and can see how complex he was. At times he was cruel and hard driving, at others, compassionate and unsure. Good reading for anyone interested in Che
