The Fall of Che Guevara

A Story of Soldiers, Spies, and Diplomats

Henry Butterfield Ryan

  • Based on numerous interviews and secret documents released specifically for ths book by the CIA, the State Department, the Pentagon, and the National Security Council
  • Written by a former U.S. Foreign Service Officer, this book shows conclusively that the U.S. government neither killed Guevera nor ordered him killed
  • Demonstrates in detail for the first time the role of the US government in checking Che Guevara
  • Demonstrates how new US counterinsurgency theories met head-on in Bolivia with Cuba's maverick theories of revolution and how they succeeded there even while they were being ingnored in Vietnam
