About this book
Tania is a gripping account of the extraordinary woman who fought and died alongside Che Guevara in Bolivia. As her companero in Cuba, Ulises Estrada is uniquely placed to provide a candid political biography of a passionate and intelligent young woman, fearlessly dedicated to the liberation of Latin America in the 1960s.

Tania was born Hayd?e Tamara Bunke B?der, in Argentina, 1937, to German communist parents. Her family moved to East Germany after the war, but Tania was soon drawn to the Cuban Revolution. She eventually became one of Cuba?s most successful agents in Latin America, penetrating Bolivian high society and preparing the way for Che Guevara?s undercover entry into the country. When her cover was blown, Tania joined Che?s guerrilla movement but was killed in an ambush in August 1967. She was only 30 years old.

Ulises Estrada was a central figure in Cuba?s support for revolutionary and liberation movements in Latin America and Africa. He was a key organizer of Che Guevara?s guerrilla mission to Bolivia. Although against the rules of clandestine work, Tania and Ulises fell in love, and planned to make a life together after Tania?s return from Bolivia.
