Publisher Comments:

THE BASIS OF THE MOVIE andldquo;CHE: PART ONEandrdquo; FROM STEVEN SODERBERGH STARRING BENICIO DEL TORO

The dramatic art and acute perceptiveness evident in Che Guevaraandrsquo;s early diaries fully blossom in this highly readable and often entertaining account of the guerrilla war that led to the 1959 Cuban Revolution. Reminiscences is one of the two books for Steven Soderberghandrsquo;s biopic (along with The Bolivian Diary).

Feature chapters describe Cheandrsquo;s first meeting with Fidel in Mexico, the mythical moment when Che had to choose between a knapsack of medicine and another of ammunition, and the anguished story of the murdered puppy.

This new, thoroughly revised edition includes for the first time corrections made to the diary by Che himself and a preface by his daughter Aleidaand#160;.
