DOUBLE LIFE OF FIDEL CASTRO


DOUBLE LIFE OF FIDEL CASTRO

JUAN REINALDO SANCHEZ    Book Number: 86479    Product format: Hardback

Castro's worst hypocrisies, regal indulgences, and narcissistic excess are bared by his former bodyguard. With a respected French journalist, Sanchez depicts the Cuban leader as no writer has ever done before. Here one of Castro's most senior-ranking soldiers breaks his silence. He shares his memoirs of his years of service, his eventual imprisonment and torture for displeasing the notorious dictator, and his dramatic escape from Cuba. While responsible for protecting the Líder Máximo, Sanchez was party to his secret life - the ghost town in which guerrillas from several continents were trained, Castro's immense personal fortune including a huge property portfolio, a secret paradise island, seizure of public money, and his relationship with his family and his nine children from five different partners. He exposes countless state secrets and the many sides of the Cuban monarch - genius war leader in Nicaragua and Angola, paranoid autocrat at home, master spy, Machiavellian diplomat, and accomplice to drug traffickers. Modern history told from a unique perspective. Colour maps on endpapers. US first edition. 278pp.
