A lot of the literature at the Cuban Revolution appear to be mesmerised through the character and position of Fidel Castro, an interpretation which has frequently avoided a deeper political realizing of the Revolution's underlying constructions. right here Anthony Kapcia bargains a much-needed corrective to 'Fidel-centric' histories of the Cuban revolution, focusing as a substitute on a much wider forged of characters unknown to informal observers.

Among the captured rebels was Mario Chanes, that much-persecuted man who has never had the good fortune of becoming famous. Fidel was presumed dead, but, of course, he wasn’t. A few days later, somewhere in the hills, a small band of survivors would re-group round their leader; they were twelve. Much has been said about them, for they have not lacked historians; some enjoy international fame, and almost all have occupied or still occupy high government office—those, of course, who are still alive and have been able to retain Fidel’s favor.
No doubt the BRAC told him of the activities of certain communists in relation to Castro—the early party youth membership of Castro’s brother, Raúl, for example, or the dubious affiliations of Ernesto Guevara in Guatemala in 1954, or the actions of Dr. Carlos Rafael Rodríguez, Félix Torres, Armando Acosta, Pablo Ribalta, Osvaldo Sánchez, to name a few of the party members who, in 1958, began to prepare the ground for the later association of Castro with the communists. But there was a lot of evidence that other opponents of Batista were more dominant around Castro.
Action such as discussed—as mentioned above, in the Pentagon on December 31, 1958—would have led to many difficulties even in the relaxed atmosphere of the 1950s. Sending in forces to prevent Castro from capturing power at that stage would have been almost like sending troops into Paris in June 1944 to prevent De Gaulle taking over the government. Similar problems, more muted perhaps, would have occurred had the two choices—to sustain Batista or to substitute him—been left to the CIA, in the style of Guatemala.
