A memoir by Fidel Castro
Edited by David Deutschmann
Preface by Jesús Montane
Fidel Castro writes with great candor and emotion about a historic revolutionary partnership that changed the face of Cuba and Latin America. Fidel vividly portrays Che—the man, the revolutionary, and the intellectual—revealing much about his own inimitable determination and character.
This new edition 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.
Che's life has had the unique virtue of impressing even his worst ideological enemies, causing them to admire him.
