Contesting Castro

Oxford University Press

William D. Pawley had no hesitation about how to stop Fidel Castro's run. He went directly to President Eisenhower to make his case. This Florida businessman, who had investments in Cuba, opposed the arms shipment suspension to the Batista administration. He warned the president in private Washington meetings that Castro would strangle Cuba with communism. Now Pawley, whose passion was on salesmanship and adventure, pushed a strong plan to avoid the success of Fidel Castro.

Keywords:   William D. Pawley, Fidel Castro, Eisenhower, Florida, communism
