paperback. 446 pages, 5" x 8". Index. Content:
"Dr. Mario Lazo's dramatic and revealing
account of the Castro era, and of U. S. policies that
have given world Communism a staging platform of
fearful military and subversive power in the Caribbean
- a dagger pointed at the heart of America...Dr. Lazo...
has lived exactly half of a long and colorful life in
Cuba and half in the United States." After the Bay of
Pigs, Dr. Lazo returned to the U.S., researched how
Castro came to power, why the Bay of Pigs invasion
failed. "Lazo's re-creation of the Bay of Pigs disaster
and the military crisis ...challenges the accepted
versions." Dr. Lazo "received a law degree from Cornell,
served as a Captain in the U.S.Army during WWI, went to
Cuba, took a law degree from the Univ. of Havana,
founded a law firm...which represented U.S. government,
major American corporations, and a distinguished Cuban
clientele." Condition: Binding and text tight, clean,
no marks, no tears, no edgewear.
This book confirms and adds to the great book "Fourth
Floor", many thinks this book is reveals much more than
the book written by Earl Smith.
