Summary
October 9, 1967. World-renowned revolutionary Che Guevara is dead at 39. The charismatic Argentinian had been leading guerrilla fighters in Bolivia and was captured by the Bolivian army. A sergeant volunteered to execute the prisoner. Around the globe, reactions to the assassination were mixed. In Cuba, where Guevara had helped overthrow a brutally repressive dictatorship in 1959, more than a million people mourned openly. But elsewhere, many business leaders and government officials were relieved. To the rich and powerful, Guevara was dangerous. His anti-capitalist movement sought to strip big businesses of their land and power. He wanted to set up socialist systems to spread wealth and resources among ordinary workers--in Latin America and all around the world. How did the fiercely independent and internationally admired revolutionary leader end his life as a captive in a tiny Bolivian village? Why did he die a hunted man, without a fair trial, at the hands of a Bolivian soldier? And how did his story become a legend?--From publisher description
