Timeline Of Che Guevara's Life
Bibliography Of Che Guevara's Works In English
- Release Date: 2007
An affluent Argentine child grows up intending to become a doctor but instead becomes a worldwide revolutionary icon.
Ernesto "Che" Guevera's life is an incredible story that spanned and even shaped the Cold War and still resonates today. HISTORY® proudly presents this sweeping, entertaining and highly informative documentary of the man and his times.
Che Guevera's quest to expand his revolution through Latin America and beyond had armies and intelligence agencies vying to destroy him. His enemies most feared Che's almost mystical influence over others. Even in death, Che was a threat, and the secret disposal of the revolutionary's body did nothing to stem his posthumous idolization.
THE LIFE OF A REBEL offers an exciting new look into Che Guevera's extraordinary life and exposes some of the most relevant but least known aspects of the Cold War. Guided by Jon Lee Anderson, author of the best-selling biography Che, journey from his affluent upbringing in Argentina to the blood-soaked battlefields of the Cuban revolution, from proud victories to humiliating defeats and eventual assassination in the presence of the CIA in the jungles of Bolivia.
Discover the truth behind the idol, the real man behind the familiar t-shirt image, in this comprehensive, unique exploration of Che Guevera.
