Summary
A recounting of the Bay of Pigs Crisis drawing upon the author's father's connection to the events as they played out
Summary
Rasenberger delivers the definitive account of one of the most ill-fated blunders in U.S. history. Trained by the CIA, 1,400 Cuban expats planned to invade Cuba, trigger a popular revolt, and topple Castro's communist regime. But when Castro was tipped off and U.S. air support was cancelled, the would-be liberators were sacrificed in a crossfire of betrayal
