“[Guevara’s] arguments are as symmetrically arranged as steel filings around a magnet.” —Washington PostWritten immediately after the Cuban Revolution and first published in 1961, Guerrilla Warfare soon became a how-to manual for legions of guerrilla fighters around the world—from Latin America to Africa and Asia. In this revolutionary primer, Che focuses on the general principles of guerrilla warfare, the guerrilla “band,” the organization of the guerrilla front, and strategies for preserving and defending power once it has been won. The book covers broad topics—guerrilla strategy and tactics; propaganda, training, and indoctrination; and the role of women—and more specific issues like medical problems, supplies, and “sabotage.” Che’s epilogue, written a year after “the culmination of the long armed civil struggle by the Cuban people,” includes his analysis of the Cuban situation at the time and predictions for the country’s future.

Ernesto Che Guevara (1928–1967) was born in Rosario, Argentina, and became attracted to Marxist theory after witnessing the conditions in South America as a young medical student. He went on to serve as a military advisor to Fidel Castro and as guerrilla commander against Batista forces during the Cuban Revolution. After Castro’s insurgent victory, he served in various posts but left the Cuban government to take the ideas of the Cuban revolution around the world. He later took part in guerrilla action in Bolivia, where he was executed by government forces. Nearly a half century after his death, Che remains a potent revolutionary and cultural figure.
