M-26: A Biography of the Cuban Revolution

M-26: A Biography of the Cuban Revolution, first published in 1961, is a reporter’s account of the overthrow of the Batista regime and Fidel Castro’s successful rise to power. Author Robert Taber, a correspondent for CBS, details the political and economic situation which helped foster the revolution, plus chronicles events of the revolution and his experiences while living with the guerrilla fighters in Cuba’s mountainous interior. M26 (the name is from an earlier unsuccessful uprising—Movimiento Revolucionario—led by Castro in July, 1953) is a valuable resource for anyone seeking a well-written account of this critical period in Cuba’s history.
