Each Cuban could write a book
In 50 years as a Cuban I know first hand the pain and suffering The castro regime caused. My mother could never return to bury her parents. The eldest of 8 siblings. They called us Gusanos; worms for not agreeing to sing the praises of revolution. A revolt lead by criminals. Just try to leave Cuba=6 years prison or worse.
Historically incomplete and reductionist. The book is more of a high school power point project than a meaningful look into history. Listen to this: “The question must be asked at this point: why did the United States not eliminate Castro? Simply put, at that time the U.S. maintained a policy of not assassinating the leaders of recognized countries, even if that leader is doing harm to his people. As a result, the United States had to find other means of removing Castro from power, as it was unwilling to remove Castro by force.”
This is the same United States that trained a coup force for the Bay of Pigs! The same United States that has been responsible for every “regime change” (coup) in Latin America to this day since the 1900s.
From using inexcusably soft language in explaining its colonized years under Spain to overt misunderstandings and misrepresentations of the power dynamic between the US, Cuba, and The Soviet Union, this book this book can only serve as a timeline, not a historically nuanced recount of events.
