The blurb of this book does not begin to do it justice. If you are interested in the Cuban Revolution, this is essential reading. The story is about Celia Sanchez who was effectively the coordinator of the revolution - she scouted landing sites for the Granma, procured supplied and funds for the revolution and put into effect Fidel's plans - all at the risk to her own life. There are some oddities in the book; the author interjects herself into the story at some points, and she skips from the time when the rebel army was near annihilation to victory. Nevertheless, it is well worth reading about a remarkable woman who is little known out side of Cuba.
