Here for the first time is the full, unvarnished story of the Cuban Invasion - told by the reporters who know the story best. Who can forget April 17, 1961 - the unhappy day when an invasion of Cuba sponsored by the United States melted into disaster in less than 72 hours. In a hard hitting and objective account two experienced reporters piece together the events in Cuba, Miami and Washington that carried a minature army to defeat in the Bay of Pigs. The narrative begins with Fidel Castro's rise to power. It traces the perversion of the Cuban revolution and show how "anti-americanism" served Fidel's plans. It describes the inept efforts of the CIA to create a secret army in Guatemala, it explains - if anything can - how an Administration staffed with able and bright officials went along with a plan that could not succeed. How did it happen? Here is the full story. --- from book's back cover
