La Guerra de Guerrillas [Guerilla Warfare]

[Havana]: Tallares del I.N.R.A. de MINFAR, [1961]. First Edition. Paperback. Illustrated by Hernando Lopez. Inscribed by Guevara on the front endpaper. Very Good in the pictorial wraps, toned near the spine and edges, lightly rubbed, some soiling on the back wrap. Square and firmly bound, sparsely foxed on the outer edges, a few instances of penciled brackets in the margins. Guevara's first published work on the concept of guerrilla warfare, and one of the most enduring of all his publications. In the six parts ("Essence," "Strategy," "Tactics," "War in Favorable Terrain," "War in Unfavorable Terrain," and "Suburban War") Che outlines the warfare tactics and philosophy utilized by the revolutionaries. In the opening pages of the first chapter, he outlines three tenets: "(1) Popular forces can win a war against the army. (2) It is not necessary to wait until all conditions for making revolution exist; the insurrection can create them. (3) In underdeveloped America the countryside is the basic area for armed fighting" (trans. Becker, 1998). An historically important book. Very Good. Item #1574
