Che Guevara's disappearance from Cuba in 1965 aroused much speculation. In preparation for the fateful Bolivian mission, Che led a secret Cuban force to aid the liberation movement in the Belgian Congo after Patrice Lumumba was assassinated there. Unpublished for decades because of its controversial content, this account of Che's lost year in Africa reflects his great literary gift, his characteristic insightfulness, his dry wit and his brutal honesty. Che's original manuscript has been revised and reviewed by Fidel Castro and Che's widow, Aleida March.
Now thoroughly revised by Ches widow Aleida March, this diary remained unpublished for decades because of its controversial content, but, like his other diaries, reveals Ches great literary gift, his razor-sharp intellect, his dry wit and brutal honesty.
