NPR Summary

Adapted from Jon Lee Anderson's original biography, Che vividly transports us from young Ernesto's medical school days as a sensitive asthmatic to the battlefields of the Cuban revolution. Renowned Mexican artist José Hernández's drawings bring to life the bullets winging past the young rebel's head, the thick smoke of his and Fidel Castro's cigars, and his proud face as he's called "Comandante" for the first time.
