"Gray Lynch was there at the Bay of Pigs and was in perfect position to write the definitive ground-level account of what went right and what went wrong. His anger toward the men at the top is the anger of a patriot who feels he was betrayed. This is not a book for those who love Camelot."
"Grabs and retains the reader's attention with fastpaced action, convincing tactical commentary, tales of bravery, a few accounts of cowardice, and the story of a brutal, tragic end to the enterprise."
"This book is his testimony--a devastating corrective to the historical pseudo-record."
