Castro's Bomb by Robert Conroy

Set in 1963 after the Cuban Missile Crisis, Castro and his army use weapons left behind by the Russians to seize the U.S. base at Guantanamo Bay and then plan missile strikes against the U.S. From the corridors of power -- with John F. Kennedy trying desperately to retain his leadership and keep the war from escalating -- to soldiers and civilians both American and Cuban, this high-voltage novel follows the bloody fighting and struggles on the ground while never losing sight of how war can transform people and set in motion some highly unexpected consequences. Winner of the Sidewise Award for Best Alternate History Novel, bestselling author William R. Forstchen wrote, "Conroy's work is the type of book you simply can't put down."

About the Author

After taking early retirement from automotive management, Conroy decided to combine his loves of history and writing. After discovering that Kaiser Wilhelm had plans to invade the U.S., he wrote his first alternate history, “1901,” in which the invasion took place. "1901" was a Book of the Month Club Alternate. Altogether, five of his novels have been published and three were nominated for the Sidewise Award, with “1942” winning the award for 2009. He has also written for Military History Magazine. He finds alternate history fascinating and the possibilities never-ending. He will not run out of plots.

Conroy has an MBA and, when not writing, is adjunct faculty at Macomb Community College where he teaches business. He has a married daughter and two grandsons, and lives in southeastern Michigan with his wife of forty-plus years along with a very spoiled Border Terrier.

As with his first book. Robert keeps you interested from the first page to the last. While 1901 is still my favorite of his books, Castro's Bomb you will want to read in one sitting.

I love reading Conroy's books, but unfortunately I do not have an e-reader. I want to read this particular book as the time frame happens within my lifetime, but alas, I shall have to wait until I can update my technological prowess. Bummer!
