    After watching the Che movie I have realised how little I knew about Che Guevara, Fidel Castro and the rest of the Revolutionaries and the Cuban Revolution itself . Personally I am not a fan or Marxism but I am starting to appreciate Che for standing up for what he believed in. Anyway unlike many other people who start buying Guevara merchandise and so on, I actually want to know more about him and his legacy as well as the revolution. At the moment I only have a basic knowledge on the whole topic ... So anyway has anyone read any of his books? The Motorcycle Diaries, A Revolutionary Life, Guerrilla Warfare,Episodes of the Cuban Revolutionary War ? If so what are your opinions on the books and which one should I get? I am also looking forward in purchasing Diary of a Combatant which is a diary of his campaign which hasn't been released as far as I know ... Would it be better to buy books written by Che personally or biographies or books on the revolution itself ,to get a accurate view?

    Unfortunately with Marxism very little is accurate. So much ambiguity.

    I can only suggest: http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Marxism-...4282637&sr=1-1

    Buy the John Lee Anderson biography ('Che: A Revolutionary Life', I think it is called'), which is very good and pretty much the only resource you need (although I have also read the Motorcycle Diaries and the Bolivian Diaries).
