Brigadier General Tete Puebla, the highest-ranking woman in Cuba's Revolutionary Armed Forces, joined the struggle to overthrow the U.S.-backed dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista in 1956, when she was fifteen years old. This is her story-from clandestine action in the cities, to serving as an officer in the victorious Rebel Army's first all-women's unit-the Mariana Grajales Women's Platoon. For nearly fifty years, the fight to transform the social and economic status of women in Cuba has been inseparable from Cuba's socialist revolution."Puebla's compelling personal life story is complemented throughout by an assortment of visual materials; including maps, excerpts from correspondence between members of the July 27 Movement, and photos of significant historical figures.... [F]or undergraduate Latin American History and Women's Studies survey courses."-Cuban Studies Foreword by Juan Almeida Bosque, introduction by Mary-Alice Waters, 20-page photo section plus additional photos, map, glossary, notes, index.
