The Fall of Che Guevara

A Story of Soldiers, Spies, and Diplomats

Henry Butterfield Ryan

The Fall of Che Guevara tells the story for the first time of the United States government's response to Guevara's ill-starred insurgency in Bolivia in 1967. Author Henry Butterfield Ryan argues that Guevara's life must be re-evaluated in light of secret documents recently released specifically for this book by the CIA, the State Department, the Pentagon, and the National Security Archive. This dramatic account of the last days of Che Guevara will appeal to scholars and students of United States foreign policy, Latin American history, military history, and to all those interested in this revolutionary's remarkable life.
