Bibliography Includes bibliographical references.
Summary Manuel Pineiro, known as "Barba Roja" (or Red Beard), was a figure of great mystery for decades. As head of the Cuban Communist Party's "Americas Department", he oversaw Cuba's operations in support of liberation movements on every continent, especially Latin America and Africa. Pineiro was one of Che Guevara's closest collaborators, responsible for his missions to the Congo and Bolivia. He later went on to work with revolutionaries in Chile, Nicaragua, El Salvador and many other Latin American countries. Pineiro spoke out publicly for the first time in 1997 on the 30th anniversary of Che's death. This book includes many extraordinary new revelations about Cuba's role in Latin America and some profound insights into Che Guevara's life and legacy. Manuel Pineiro died in an automobile accident in March 1998.
