Luis Alfonso Zayas, a general in the Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces, recounts his experiences over five decades in the Cuban Revolution. From a teenage combatant in the clandestine struggle and 1956-58 war that brought down the US-backed dictatorship, to serving three times as a leader of the Cuban volunteer forces that helped Angola defeat an invasion by the army of white-supremacist South Africa, Zayas tells how he and other ordinary men and women in Cuba changed the course of history and, in the process, transformed themselves as well.
Introduction by Mary-Alice Waters, photos, index, maps.

"The book's strength rests ... on Zayas's ability to present an account of the revolution through the eyes of someone who played a significant role in its initiation and consolidation." --Bulletin of Latin American Research
