Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Louis A. Pérez examines the founding of the national army in Cuba, the rise and fall of Cuban army preeminence during the Machado regime, the bizarre army seizure of power in 1933, which resulted in the collapse of the officer corps, and follows the dominance of the army until the revolution of 1958. He shows that the Cuban political order rested on the stability of the army, which itself grew increasingly estranged from national traditions and eventually became the tool of a clique of political leaders, only to fall to rebel forces during the revolution.

Synopsis:

Pérez follows the rise and fall of the Cuban army, and its increasing political influence, from the Spanish American War until Castro’s revolutionary takeover in 1958.

About the Author

Louis A. Pérez Jr. is J. Carlyle Sitterson Professor of History at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
