Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For the first time, the story of andldquo;Tania the guerrillaandrdquo; is told with tenderness and veracity by a key participant in the revolutionary movement in Latin America.

Tania was born Haydand#233;e Tamara Bunke to German Jewish refugees in Argentina in 1937. Her family moved to East Germany after the war, but she was soon drawn to the Cuban Revolution.

She became one of Cubaandrsquo;s most successful spies in Latin America, penetrating Boliviaandrsquo;s high society and even making contact with the countryandrsquo;s president and other members of the ruling circle. When her cover was blown she joined Cheandrsquo;s guerrilla group but was killed in an ambush in August 1967. She was only 30 years old.

At the time of her death, the CIA suggested Tania had been romantically involved with Che, largely in order to discredit him. Most biographers consider this unlikely.

When Patty Hearst was andldquo;kidnappedandrdquo; by the Symbionese Liberation Army, she adopted the name andldquo;Taniaandrdquo; and appeared with a gun and a beret, mimicking the classic pose of the real Tania

Tania, played by Franka Potente (Run Lola Run), will be a major character in the Steven Soderbergh/Benicio Del Toro forthcoming movie Che, which focuses on the Bolivia period

Includes Ulises Estradaandrsquo;s own personal photos and correspondence as well as testimonies from other guerrilla fighters. Appendices include recently declassified Cuban files on the andldquo;Bolivia mission.andrdquo;

Ulises Estrada was the principal organizer of Che Guevaraandrsquo;s guerrilla mission to Bolivia and also trained and ran Tania as the key undercover agent who was to be sent to Bolivia in advance of Guevaraandrsquo;s arrival. Although against the rules in such espionage operations, Tania and Ulises fell in love and planned to make a life together after Taniaandrsquo;s return from Bolivia.

Synopsis:

Tania recovers the history of the extraordinary woman who fought and died alongside Che Guevara in Bolivia.
