A LifeBook - 2010
Argentine by birth, Ernesto "Che" Guevara came to embody the spirit of the Cuban revolution. Guevara spent two years fighting in the sierras of Cuba, and after the revolutionaries' victory became one of the leading members of the government as well as one of Castro's closest and most controversial associates. Also an important writer, Guevara constantly developed ideas about how to spread anti-imperialist revolution throughout the Caribbean and Latin America. His later years took him to Africa, in search of another guerilla war, and finally to a tragic end in the mountains of Bolivia. Che Guevara was someone who showed few contradictions between his life and his writing, and his example continues to win admirers among new generations anxious to explore ways of changing the world.
