    Story
    (196)

    Che Guevara was a dashing rebel whose epic dream was to end poverty and injustice in Latin America and the developing world through armed revolution. Jon Lee Anderson traces Che's extraordinary life from his comfortable Argentine upbringing to the battlefields of the Cuban revolution, from the halls of power in Castro's government to his failed campaign in the Congo and his assassination in the Bolivian jungle.

    Matthew says: "Encompassing and Fair Look at an Historical Man"
    "Touching insight in a complex personality."

    Story

    Being a right winged European, I have never been much interested in Cuba, Castro or Che Guevara, but I couldn't put down this work. It's full of details, and beautifully written so it never gets boring. The book gives a great insight in life and thoughts of Che Guevara and the contrast with other people, most notably with Fidel Castro. It's definitely not a hero's story. It's unbelievable how many of today's conflicts in Africa and especially South and Middle America were started with the help of Che Guevara. This is a fantastic work about a guy that lived and in the end died for his principles. A book I should have read 15 years earlier.
