About the Book:
At the end of “the Missiles of October Crisis,” the US had demanded that Russia remove all of their missiles that were 90 miles offshore from the United States. However, Fidel Castro had secretly removed six nuclear warheads before the entire thirty-two missiles were sent back to Russia. It was always Fidel’s thinking that these warheads might one day be the savior of his nation. While he aligned himself with other communist countries, his inner sense always told him that he and Cuba were geographically an island of political ideology. He always knew Cuba was never more than a pawn for Russia as a threat to the United States during the Cold War. It’s 1992. Clinton has ascended the Presidency, the Cold War is over, and the West is offering aid for democratization and the dismantling of former Soviet nuclear arsenals. Fidel Castro is left in the lurch with his former Soviet benefactors now bankrupt, and Castro has one last ploy to bring the West to him.
