Henry a wallace vice president
Che Guevara: A Revolutionary Life by Jon Lee AndersonAcclaimed around the world and a national best-seller, this is the definitive work on Che Guevara, the dashing rebel whose epic dream was to end poverty and injustice in Latin America and the developing world through armed revelation. Jon Lee Andersons biography traces Ches extraordinary life, from his comfortable Argentine upbringing to the battlefields of the Cuban revolution, from the halls of power in Castros government to his failed campaign in the Congo and assassination in the Bolivian Jungle.
Anderson has had unprecedented access to the personal archives maintained by Guevaras window and carefully guarded Cuban government documents. He has conducted extensive interviews with Ches comarades-some of whom speak here for the first time-and with CIA men and Bolivian officers who hunted him down. Anderson broke the story of where Guevaras body was buried, which led to the exhumation and stat burial of the bones. Many of the details of Ches life have long been cloaked in secrecy and intrigue. Meticulously researched and full of exclusive information, Che Guevara illuminates as never before this mythic figure who embodied the high-water mark of revolutionary communism as a force in history.

During his single term, Henry Wallace became more involved in administrative and foreign policy matters than any of his predecessors.
