"The Bay of Pigs, the Untold Story" by Peter Wyden
I appreciated this book. I feel that it is a worthwhile read, but Wyden does leave the door open for someone to come in and fill in some color to
this picture. I enjoyed the detail presented through the interviews with the Cuban residents and Castro's people. I would have liked to see more of that and more directly from Fidel and Raul Castro. I understand though that when this book was published in 1979, this was the most extensive detail ever presented to the public.
A fair, balanced and worthwhile read here.
