   schema:reviewBody ""No account of Fidel Castro's rise to power is complete without mention of the failed attacks of July 26, 1953, on the Cuban army garrisons at Moncada and Bayamo. Yet no single volume to date has offered a comprehensive assessment of the assault that set the Cuban Revolution into motion and for which the 26 of July Movement was named. In this thorough study, Antonio Rafael de la Cova views this initial overthrow attempt as a propaganda victory that marked the start of Castro's ascent to national power. Drawing from three decades of interviews with more than one hundred participants - including surviving rebels, military and government personnel, and politicians - de la Cova screens historical facts from popular fictions to build an accurate account of this turning point in Cuban history and the cold war."--Jacket." ;
