For the first time the former head of Cuban State Security speaks out about the confrontation with U.S. intelligence and presents stunning new evidence of the conspiracy between the Mafia, the Cuban counterrevolution and the CIA.

Agents from both sides describe a scene of espionage, sabotage, assassination plots, guerrilla warfare and plans for military invasion.

Executive action : 634 ways to kill Fidel Castro by Fabián Escalante Font( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fabian Escalante reviews over four decades of attempts to kill Fidel Castro - involving weapons that ranged from exploding cigars and poison pens to grenades and bazookas. As the former director of Cuban counterintelligence, Escalante played a significant role in frustrating many of these assassination plans, made by the CIA and the Mafia under a project codenamed "Executive Action."" "Although melodramatic and at times quite comical, these plots were deadly serious - and illegal, as subsequent US government inquiries such as the 1975 Church Commission concluded."--BOOK JACKET

Operación Calipso da continuidad a la tetralogía que su autor, Fabián Escalante Font, ha denominado La Guerra Secreta. El escenario es ahora la región centroamericana, en particular, Nicaragua, donde el gobierno imperialista de los Estados Unidos desató una guerra sucia contra el gobierno del Frente Sandinista de Liberación Nacional (FSLN), que había logrado, tras lustros de sangrienta lucha, derrocar a una feroz dictadura trasmitida de padre a hijo y que ahogó con una represión sin precedentes los anhelos de independencia del pueblo del General de Hombres Libres, Augusto César Sandino. La obra se complementa con una pormenorizada cronología de 1979 a 1983, en la cual se expone cómo el imperio intentó, por medio de la lucha armada, derrocar a la joven revolución nicaragüense. Asimismo, un testimonio gráfico ayuda eficazmente a una mejor comprensión de la obra
