The story of Che Guevara’s “lost” year in Africa
Ernesto Che Guevara
Prior to his fateful mission to Bolivia, in 1965 Che led a secret Cuban force that went to aid theAfrican national liberation movement against the Belgian colonialists.
Now thoroughly revised by Che’s widow Aleida March, this diary remained unpublished for decades because of its controversial content, but,like his other diaries, it revealsChe’s great literary gift, his razor-sharp intellect, his dry wit and brutal honesty.
Includes a foreword by Gabriel García Márquez, “Che Guevara in the Congo.”
Published in association with the Che Guevara Studies Center (Havana).
ALSO AVAILABLE BY CHE GUEVARA
The Bolivian Diary
Che Guevara's feats in our continent were of such magnitude that no prison or censorship could hide them from us. His life is an inspiration for every human being who loves freedom.
Che Guevara, at the prime of his life and the height of his fame, went off to fight in the Congo. In that fleeting, anonymous passage through Africa, Che Guevara was to sow a seed that no one will destroy.
—Gabriel García Márquez (foreword)
