best

The author molded Cuba into a hard line communist state with ties to the Soviet Union . But, at the same time his people were poor & living in poverty . History will be the judge of this.

prefect

It is amazing how History has produced leaders of countries whether good of bad. Some simply take advantage of the political & economic situation at the time.

loved it

I loved this book. So much info packed into a relatively easy read. I couldn't put it down. Having just returned from Cuba, I just wish I had read it before I went instead of after. Highly recommend.
