Description

Novela hist�rica sobre la vida de C�sar G�mez Hern�ndez, quien durante la dictadura de Fulgencio Batista en Cuba, tuvo que exiliarse en M�xico por hacer parte de la oposici�n. En 1956 regres� a la isla a bordo del Granma, junto con Fidel y Ra�l Castro, el Che Guevara y otros setenta y ocho expedicionarios que buscaban liberar el pa�s de la intervenci�n estadounidense y acabar con los horrores del gobierno de Batista.

Cuando se acab� la dictadura, la Revoluci�n cubana tom� un rumbo inesperado: la isla se transform� en una rep�blica marxista, lo que iba en contra de los ideales de muchos de los expedicionarios del Granma. Es por esto que G�mez tuvo que volver a exiliarse, esta vez para siempre, pues para sus excompa�eros se convirti� en un traidor.

En esta conmovedora y apasionante novela, de la mano de su protagonista, Oscar Vela narra la historia detr�s de la Revoluci�n cubana, del gobierno de Fidel Castro y lo que este signific� para los revolucionarios que lo acompa�aron en el derrocamiento de Batista.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

A historical novel about the life of C�sar G�mez Hern�ndez, one of the masterminds of the Granma expedition. During the Fulgencio Batista dictatorship, Fidel Castro came into Cuba with his revolution, and once Castro took power, C�sar G�mez Hern�ndez had to leave and exile in Mexico for being part of Castro's opposition.

In 1956 C�sar G�mez Hern�ndez was aboard the famous Granma along with Fidel and Raul Castro, Che Guevara, and seventy-eight other revolutionaries seeking to free the country from US intervention and to end the horrors of the Batista government.

In this moving and intense novel, Oscar Vela as a protagonist narrates the story behind the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro's regime, and what Castro meant for the revolutionaries who joined him in the overthrow of Batista.
