A very thorough history of Fidel and Che's time working together. Although the title concerns friendship, I'm not entirely sure the dynamic of their relationship is exemplified enough through all the historical detail. The author has obviously done extensive research and has articulated the key points of their history together, gives a few cues here and there, but does leave some of it up to the reader to figure out on their own. Plus, since one guy's long dead and the other not really accessible, much is left to speculation.

As a general Cuban Revolution enthusiast with a working knowledge of the events and key players, I found this book laid another layer of granular information I hadn't yet gleaned from other readings - there was more to this than the same old rehash of the revolution. This is not a quick read by any means, and Cuban Revolution/Che/Fidel novices may find this book a bit overwhelming.
