Che Guevara and the Latin American Revolution
Manuel Piñeiro, known as “Barbarroja” (Red Beard) was a figure of great mystery for decades, who oversaw Cuba’s operations in Latin America and Africa and in this work closely collaborated with Che Guevara. Piñeiro first spoke out publicly only in 1997, but died in a car crash shortly afterwards.
Piñeiro offers some fascinating insights into Che’s Latin American strategy and answers the accusation that Che left Cuba because he was disaffected and that Fidel Castro abandoned him when the Bolivia mission began to fail.
This new edition has a great new cover, showing Che Guevara in his “Clark Kent” disguise.
