FIDEL AND CHE: A REVOLUTIONARY FRIENDSHIP is the story of the
peasant`s son, scholar, and rebel – Fidel Castro, and his fateful
meeting with the itinerant doctor Ernesto (Che) Guevara.
thirty, and both in exile, they met in Mexico City in 1955. By 1967 Che
Guevara was dead. But over the course of their twelve year friendship
they became two of the twentieth century`s most compelling figures. The
book follows Fidel and Che on their dramatic journey from Mexico`s
political underground, to war in the Cuban mountains, and ultimately
into the heart of the Cold War.
Drawing on extensive research,
including recently declassified material, Simon Reid-Henry interviews
key personalities across three continents. He takes us to the heart of
Fidel and Che`s unique relationship as what began as a political
association became the most profound friendship of their lives.
AND CHE is set against the tide of revolution. It is the story of two
men who shared a common dream; who became friends, comrades and
brothers-in-arms and who, finally, would make an epic choice between
their friendship and their beliefs
