A masterful account of one of the most disastrous missteps in American foreign policy, The Bay of Pigs gives the engrossing story of the US-backed invasion of Cuba in April of 1961 by 1400 exiled Cubans. Designed to overthrow the communist regime of Fidel Castro, the invasion--now known simply as the Bay of Pigs--was a complete failure that had far-reaching implications in shaping John F. Kennedy's Cold War attitudes and presidential agenda
