Julio Antonio del Marmol Opens Up About his Career as a Spy
In "Cuba: Russian Roulette of the World" (published by iUniverse), the new memoir by Dr. Julio Antonio del Marmol, readers will step into the exciting world of a Cuban spy, following him from his beginnings as a military leader at age 12 to his intrepid missions of stealing classified secrets.
In del Marmol's fascinating memoir, he shows readers the roots of his unique path in life, describing himself as an idealistic youth. That attitude would allow him to come into a position of great power in Cuba, but it would also lead him into a moral crisis. In the spirit of idealism, del Marmol became a spy who worked against the dictator he had previously served: Fidel Castro. This captivating story follows a daring spy on his mission to overthrow the Castro regime from within - until, that is, del Marmol's cover is blown, and he is forced to flee for his life.
An excerpt from "Cuba: Russian Roulette of the World":
"'The deal with the Soviets is a fraud,' my uncle observed. 'Kennedy agreed to no inspections of the missile removal.'
'And the Soviets transported loads of fake missile parts,' I replied, 'while leaving the real ones here.'
'And they moved them!' my uncle exclaimed.
'Don't worry,' I reassured him, 'I will get pictures of the new locations and prove the fraud.'"
By sharing his story, del Marmol hopes to make readers aware of possible political dangers and to inspire them to be vigilant. "Be careful what political movements you support, either financially through contributions or in the actual voting booth," he says. "Not all politicians are what they seem to be, and you may wind up supporting someone who, once in a position of power, will strip you of all your rights."
