1 Johnson, Haynes Bay of Pigs, The. The Leaders' Story of Brigade 2506
Canada/U.S. Dell Pub. Co. #4710. First Dell Book Edition. Mass Market Paperback. Fine Minus. 
       October, 1964. $.75 is the original price. 343 pages which includes Biographical notes and a lengthy Index. Tight binding. Light medium beige paper, darker at the edges. The inside of both Covers are turning beige at the Spine and top edge. Green colour's on the edges. Contains: Some Maps of the invasion are at the beginning of the book and inside.
In General: There's a line across the top edge which means that this book was probably a return to the Distriibutor.
Story: The bungled attempt by U.S. - trained Cuban Exiles to invade Cuba and take the country back from Castro. Has the U.S. considered that the Cubans might not want them back? A lot of the ones who originally fled Cuba were living off the backs of poor people in Cuba and didn't really give a damn about anything except their own rich living standards.There's bad stuff still going on in Cuba what with their spying on the people, etc., but at least now there's Schooling and Medical care with well-trained Medical people. It's been a long series of bad U.S.Policy decisions all over the world. 004404

U.S. Pocket Books, Inc. #819. First Pocket Book Edition. Mass Market Paperback. Very Good Minus. 
       August, 1951. No price's mentioned although it's somewhere about $.25 I should imagine. 341 pages plus Advertising. Light beige paper. Tight binding. Red colour on the edges.
Front Cover: Various creases here-and-there and the Scotch taping's on the Spine's edge. I'm surprised it's still sticking and hasn't fallen off. The two corners are so so.
Spine: Scotch taped as it's torn for 2" at the bottom and there are two torn areas at the top.
Back Cover: A booklength crease's at the middle of the Cover and Scotch taping holds the Cover down.
In General: Page twenty-one had a little issue with the printing machine and is sort of scrunched at the top third. The mark from it continues for several pages after.
Story: Looks like the sort of Story Tyrone Power would do. Who? you ask. Cuba, under Spanish Rule and our book Hero fights for the Cuban people's Cause and, of course, for the beautiful Se�orita who's probably a high bred Castilian, or some such. But Se�or. Why do you wear the mask? Y mi amor. Mi Padre looks so unhappy. �Por que. 004829
