The book consist in a biography narrating author's life since childhood in Havana City, Cuba after being born under a Socialist-Communist dictatorship, then the years on communist boarding schools with interesting and funny stories, later becoming a jet military fighter pilot in the ex Soviet Union including flight training narratives, some poems, and finally confronting the "Gestapo" of the Cuban dictator behind bars, with interviews and pictures.

The title in English translates as "Born Motherland or Death" which was a common slogan used in society, even still today after many years, and by the Cuban dictators and their blind followers.

He dreads this suffering will remain erased as it pertains to the story which he lived in the Cuba of 'those days' under the influence of a totalitarian repressive system guided by the hand of the sickle and the hammer from the Muscovite Kremlin; the author retells also his experience and conversion to the Christian Faith founded by Jesus of Nazareth 2000 years ago, not without describing first the procedures happening in the Socialistic System during the times when they used to indoctrinate the youth in the Marxist-Leninist conceptions of a Communist Empire and its territorial ambitions led by the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics; and throughout his years as a supersonic fighter jet military pilot in the Cuban Air Force.
