The classical biography of one revolutionary by another.
Fidel Castro writes with great candor and emotion about a historic revolutionary partnership that changed the face of Cuba and Latin America. Fidel creates a vivid portrait of Che Guevara – the man, the revolutionary and the intellectual – revealing much about his own inimitable determination and character.
This now edition of a unique political memoir includes Fidel’s speech on the return of Che’s remains to Cuba 30 years after his assassination in Bolivia in 1967, and provides a frank assessment of the Bolivian mission.
“For me, it has always been hard to accept the idea that Che is dead. I dream of him often, that I have spoken to him, that he is alive.”
