First Turkish translation published in book format of "Guerilla Warfare", written by Mao Zedong and translated with the same subject written by Che Guevara and an American officer.

Mao's book contains a summary of knowledge and experience of the guerrilla resistance carried out within the national front established with Chang Kai-shek (1887-1975). Che Guevara's book, on the other hand, explains the technical results of guerrilla resistance, which was the basis of the Cuban War of Independence.

The translator of this book, Can Yücel (1926-1999) was a Turkish poet noted for his use of colloquial language. Yücel also translated the works of Shakespeare, Lorca, and Brecht into Turkish and his creative rendering of these authors are classics in their own right in Turkey. This book is translated from the original 1961 edition in English by "Cassel and Company Limited", London.
