Abstract:

In November 1964, Cuban revolutionary Che Guevara went to the Congo with two hundred men, intent on making it his first step in taking over Africa and South America. He failed, thanks in large part to the efforts of an intrepid band of Green Berets. Licking his wounds he returned to Cuba to recruit more men and try the same thing in Bolivia. He failed there, too. In fact he died there, and thus, despite his incompetence, became a glorious martyr to the cause. But who was trying to kill him, really? And why was the USA trying to keep him alive?
