Set in 1963 after the Cuban Missile Crisis, Castro and his army use weapons left behind by the Russians to seize the U.S. base at Guantanamo Bay and then plan missile strikes against the U.S. From the corridors of power - with John F. Kennedy trying desperately to retain his leadership and keep the war from escalating - to soldiers and civilians both American and Cuban, this high-voltage novel follows the bloody fighting and struggles on the ground while never losing sight of how war can transform people and set in motion some highly unexpected consequences. Winner of the Sidewise Award for Best Alternate History Novel, bestselling author William R. Forstchen wrote, "Conroy's work is the type of book you simply can't put down."

Parts were very interesting involving the political realities of the day. But other parts just dragged on.
The narration was a little odd. There were no separations between scenes. It could be a full minute before you could figure out that the book had switched to a different scene with different characters.
