Canada, British Columbia, Canada, Nova Scotia,
A small band of politically conscious Cubans are preparing an assault on the Moncada military barracks in Santiago. Their goal is to seize enough weapons and ammunition to begin a long-term insurrection against their own government. The group has little to no military experience. Leading them is a fiery, outspoken lawyer by the name of Fidel Castro.
Just eighty days before a general election is to be held, ex- Cuban-president Fulgencio Batista shocks the nation by assuming military control of the country. Within 12 hours, Batista has swept away all democratic institutions.
Fulgencio Batista is born the son of an impoverished farmer in the Oriente province, just 20 miles from where Fidel Castro grew up. In 1921 he joins the army and quickly rises to the rank of sergeant. His esteemed career in the military and years of political manoeuvring eventually lead to his election as president of Cuba, in 1940. It is a major accomplishment for a peasant's son.
Castro has two main objectives. To capture the barracks, gaining possession of the weapons within, and to seize the Santiago radio station. He intends to broadcast his revolutionary message across the country.
The 95 attackers are armed with mismatched shotguns, old rifles, some handguns, and one .45 calibre submachine gun. The total garrison strength at Moncada is 400 soldiers strong, and they are outfitted with the latest in American weaponry and small arms, including Thompson machine guns.
