about

This book tells the story--for the first time--of the United States government's response to Guevara's ill-starred insurgency in Bolivia in 1967. Henry Butterfield Ryan argues that Guevara's life must be re-evaluated in light of secret documents only recently released by the CIA, the StateDepartment, the Pentagon, and the National Security Council. Ryan's dramatic account of the last days of Che Guevara is sure to appeal to scholars and students of United States foreign policy, Latin American history, military history, and to all others interested in this modern revolutionary'sremarkable life. "Ryan offers a thoughtful critique of both the operational and intelligence-gathering aspects of the US intervention against the Cuban intervention in Bolivia....[He] enlivens his narrative with vivid portraits of the two American officials who played key parts in the hunt for Guevara....[This] isa welcome addition to the literature on both Che Guevara and US intervention in Latin America."--The Washington Monthly
Henry Butterfield Ryan is a retired United States Foreign Service officer and a professional historian. He is the author of The Vision of Anglo-America (1987) as well as numerous articles and studies concerning diplomatic history and government affairs.
