This is an excellent English, non-fiction account of the Moncada attack, when the Castros and Guevara attempted a coup in Santiago de Cuba in 1953, but failed and ended up in prison. The author follows all the groups that were involved, follows the individual revolutionaries as they travelled to Santiago de Cuba, identifies exactly who was where and did what.

The research performed is incredible. He even points out how other authors erred in certain respects.
