From 1956 to 1959, the people of Cuba struggled against immense odds to emerge victorious from years of brutal dictatorship, poverty, and corruption.

Reminiscences of the Cuban Revolutionary War are Che Guevara's classic account of the popular war that transformed a nation, as well as Che himself from troop doctor to world-famous revolutionary. Featuring a preface by Che Guevara's daughter, Aleida Guevara, and a new translation with Che's own corrections incorporated into the text for the first time, this edition also contains extraordinary photographs of the period.


“For a long time we have wanted to write a history of our revolution . . . But the tasks are many, the years go by, and the memory of the insurrection is dissolving in the past. These events have not yet been properly described, events which already belong to the history of the Americas.”
-Che Guevara
