"Cuba's own Elvis"--that's what Dan Rather calls him. Funny name for a man who has threatened the United States with nuclear war, who has made common cause with Islamic terrorists against the United States, and whose people risk death to escape him. But there's a lot that Hollywood liberals and other Fidel Castro admirers would rather you didn't know about the dictator of Cuba--like how he imprisoned more people as a percentage of population than Hitler or Stalin; how Fidel's firing squads killed thousands of Cubans; how Fidel's subjects would rather inject themselves with AIDS than live under his tyranny. Drawing on a wealth of research--including interviews with former Castro regime officials, anti-Castro freedom fighters, and Castro's political prisoners--acclaimed author Humberto Fontova reveals the ugly face of the Castro regime.
