On April 17, 1961 -- 1,500 CIA-trained Cuban refugees invaded the beach at the Bay of Pigs to win back their country from Communist dictator Fidel Castro. This anthology provides an in-depth look at the controversial issues surrounding the reasons for the invasion, why the invasion failed, and the invasion's impact on current and world events.
"In their lively depiction of events as they evolved, these volumes offer a balanced analysis that allows readers to assess the information and draw their own conclusions about some of history's most challenging and sometimes painful episodes."
