About the Author:
Juan Sanchez was conscripted into the Cuban army at the age of eighteen. Talented, intelligent and an excellent marksman, Sanchez reported for duty only to learn that he had already been vetted and hand selected by the Ministry of the Interior to join a special training programme for Cuba’s elite military personnel. This elite group would become directly responsible for the protection of Fidel Castro and the highest members of the Communist party. The details and the extent of hitherto unknown information that Sanchez reveals are explosive, and will change our understanding of Cuba and the history of the twentieth century.
