UCL-Institute of the Americas (UCL-IA) welcomes the author of this fascinating memoir, Ciro Bustos, to share his cherished memory of Che Guevara and their revolutionary life, revealing the truth behind what really happened in Bolivia in 1967 and who was responsible for Che’s execution.
As a young man inspired by the example of Cuba, Bustos was determined to bring revolution to the home country he shared with his hero. Bustos went to Havana, was recruited to the cause, and returned to Argentina determined to foment revolution, an ambition that resulted in the disastrous Salta expedition of 1964, in which most of the guerrillas were killed or captured. Bustos’s account of the debacle finally sets the record straight; he was lucky to get out alive.
