Why Amazon is asking me to rate this as a novel escapes me — it is a manual on revolutionary guerilla warfare complete with diagrams and instructions on how to make explosive devices for, e. The book has attached to it the editor’s warning that many of the compounds specified for use as components in these devices are quite unstable, and one guerilla risking his rear end to dor any significant amount of them.
I might also add that building untaxed IEDs is illegal! For the FBI agents reading this review, you albrto should be able to confirm, from Records Management, my interest in terrorist groups of old like the Symbionese Liberation Army which had copies of this book — some people really do buy these manuals for research! For everyone else, be advised that General Alberto Bayo was the man who guerrillla Fidel Castro and his forces, and that Questions for a Guerilla incorporates a lot of that information into its pages.
Do have a happy 4th of July! Love it helps a lot.

I wouldn’t get this if you want to understand guerrilla warfare. If your doing some kind of research on that time and place then mabey. Well, four stars, within its limits. The format may put off some readers from the start, as it is a hypothetical interview, with Bayo answering questions he made up.
I found it very telling as to how Bayo viewed his position in history and his own importance.
As a work on guerrilla tactics and techniques, it is pretty limited and the limits reflect its age. As a work on principles of insurgency and how to be an insurgent, it is not to bad. As a historical document relating to guerrilla warfare in the western hemisphere, it is pretty informative. Regarding tactics and techniques, it is dated.
There is no need for an aspiring guerrilla to learn to turn an aircraft propeller or hand crank a car engine. Morse code alerto not completely obsolete, but is very close. Basic push-to-talk, unsecure, voice radios were clearly high technology the author. Rocket propelled grenade launchers were not available. Some of the chemistry in ‘ Questions’ is very risky, and likely to cost an amateur some fingers.
The principles of how to be an insurgent and run an insurgency are still relevant. The author’s discussion of how to use the cell structure and the different elements quetions an organization are spot on, and still in use with only minor changes, usually driven by technology. Where ‘ Questions’ excels is as a historical document. Bayo influenced Castro and Guevara. Castro and Guevara continue to influence communists and rebels and wannabes around the world.
By understanding Bayo’s world view a little better, the chain of ideas and values behind current, active insurgents can be understood a little better.

I do not admire Bayo, Castro, or Guevara. The causes they fought for may or may not have had merit, but they were and in Castro’s case are utterly corrupted by their own ego and vanity.
However, I respect Bayo’s professionalism, that he documented his work, and his desire to pass along his knowledge. Alberto Bayo will go down in the anals of history as the unknown general who trained Castro’s rebels to win their revolution against the Batista regime.
I carried his book into the jungles of Panama when I joined a group of Panamanian rebels who were fighting against the military rule of General Omar Torrijos see “Panama-Echoes From A Revolution” in and my copy ended up being taken by one of Noriega’s secret police agents when they raided our safe house in Boquete Chiriquifortunately at that time none of us were there.
I must say that “One Hundred Fifty Questions For A Guerrilla” is, in my view, one of the best books on the subject of guerrilla warfare. General Bayo’s latout aalberto topics that are covered in this book are easily understood and there are, if I remember, several sketches that show the reader how to questionz the various items that a guerrilla can use to fight an enemy.
