The Bay of Pigs by Juan Carlos Rodriguez

£14.99

Product description

On the 17th of April, 1961, the CIA-sponsored paramilitary group Brigade 2506 landed in Cuba with one mission: to overthrow President Castro. Ultimately, however, they were defeated by Cuban military forces at the area now known as the Bay of Pigs, an event which would continue to hold international significance for both nation states for much of the 20th century. Translated by Ornán José Batista Peña, Juan Carlos Rodríguez recounts one of the most complete narratives of this historical episode, offering a unique insight from the point of view of Cuban civilians.

The copy has been read, but is in excellent condition. The pages are clean, bright and unmarked, and the cover remains clean and glossy. The spine is undamaged.

A fascinating retelling of what is arguably the most colossal CIA operation against Fidel Castro at a tumultuous time of international politics. A brilliant gift for those interested in world history or the rise of Latin American socialism.
