Publisher's Summary

Discover the remarkable history of the Cuban Revolution...

During the 1960s and 1970s, the images of two men came to dominate the iconography of left-wing movements: Fidel Castro and Che Guevara. The story of the revolution these two men led in Cuba became a fable that drove and encouraged other revolutionary movements around the world.

The Cuban Revolution is certainly astonishing. Beginning with fewer than 100 armed men, the Fidelistas took on a government that had a well-equipped army, air force, and navy. On paper, the handful of rebels stood no chance. Yet somehow, holed up in the remote Sierra Maestra mountains, this tiny group not only survived but grew in support and power until it was finally able to overthrow the brutal and corrupt government of Fulgencio Batista.

How did that happen? How were these men able not just to prosecute a successful revolution in Cuba but to take such a hold on the hearts and minds of people that they became among the best-known revolutionaries in the world? This is the astonishing story of the Cuban Revolution.
