During Fidel Castro's fight to overthrow the dictator Fulgencio Batista, the Cold War was at its hottest point. What Castro and the rest of the world did not know was that he had a very powerful ally in the CIA-Chief Allen Dulles. In a desperate move, Dulles devised a plan to use Cuba as bait for the USSR. If his plans succeeded, Castro would become a villain to the rest of America.In The Cuban Gambit, author David Bellas shares the account of his experiences in the Cuban revolution. Bellas holds the strong conviction that CIA intervention rendered Cuba a pawn to eradicate the Communist threat to democracy. Through his unique point of view, Bellas asks difficult questions that need to be answered.Bellas portrays his struggles as a college student for his country's liberation from Batista's dictatorship, then fighting against Castro's Soviet-backed Communist revolution, participating in the ill-fated Bay of Pigs invasion, and subsequently becoming POW in Castro's Cuban prisons.It took decades for the U.S. government to come clean about its October missile concessions during the Cuban missile crisis of 1962. But how long will it take before America admits the truth about The Cuban Gambit?
