By the mid-1960s, Che Guevera was famous for his outspoken criticism of the United States and his support for armed Communist insurgencies. He had been one of the architects of the Cuban Revolution, and was attempting to repeat his success throughout Latin America. His guerilla tactics and talent for proselytizing made him a threat to American foreign policy — and when he turned his attention to Bolivia in 1967, the Pentagon made a decision: Che had to be eliminated.
With a hand-picked team of specialists, Major Ralph “Pappy” Shelton, transformed a ragtag group of peasants into a trained fighting force who could also gather intelligence. With the White House and the Pentagon secretly monitoring every move, Shelton and his team changed history, and prevented a catastrophic threat from taking root in the West.
