“Success has many fathers, failure is an orphan.”—Tacitus, Agricola 98 AD.
When newly-elected President Kennedy was inaugurated the CIA’s plans and Cuban exile army were ready to invade Castor's Cuba. However, the new president wanted “plausible deniability” and the CIA invasion plans were extensively modified, with all of the Cuban exile aircraft relocated to Nicaragua airbases, and removing any direct support by US armed forces. What was left was very weakened, yet still powerful Cuban exile invasion force armed with tanks, heavy weapons and well trained for sustained combat operations. All that remained was for the Cuban people to rally to their support once the invasion commenced. Can you do as well or better than your opponents? Learn and enjoy!
