Grayston Lynch presents an exceptional portrayal of actual events that led to the betrayal of extraordinary, patriotic, and courageous men. Lynch's unmasking of "Kennedy's Camelot" reveals heart-wrenching facts that continue to stir emotions among Brigade 2506 veterans.

Arvustused

"Grabs and retains the reader's attention with fastpaced action, convincing tactical commentary, tales of bravery, a few accounts of cowardice, and the story of a brutal, tragic end to the enterprise." "Gray Lynch was there at the Bay of Pigs and was in perfect position to write the definitive ground-level account of what went right and what went wrong. His anger toward the men at the top is the anger of a patriot who feels he was betrayed. This is not a book for those who love Camelot." "This book is his testimony--a devastating corrective to the historical pseudo-record." "A rousing military adventure written by one of the [ CIA's] best and bravest....Convincing and infuriating."
