Cubans in Angola


The following account of Cuban military activities in Angola has been excerpted, from a lengthy article by Gabriel Garcia Marquez and distributed by Prensa Latina the Cuban news agency. Originally published in the US radical newspaper The Guardian early this year, it is based on extensive interviews in Cuba with officials and soldiers who went to Angola. The author, a progressive writer born in Colombia in 1928, is considered one of Latin America’s foremost living writers. He is most widely known in the US for his novel One Hundred Years of Solitude.
