Storyboard Text

  • My name is Fidel Castro & I’m now in control & you no longer have control Batista,
  • Oh no, I have been overthrown by Castro!
  • My name is Nikita Khrushchev & I can’t be trusted!
  • There is a plan to train Cuban exiles to invade Cuba.
  • Ok, I will authorize it.
  • It’s 1960 & we are now in training camps in Guatemala.
  • I approve the plan to invade, we need 2 air strikes & 1400 men.
  • Yes Sir, President JFK, my men are on it!
  • We need help! The 1st attempt failed, we missed their targets & Castro’s airfoce is intact!
  • Counterattack was 20,000, too many for us to handle, many surrendered!
  • I can’t believe we are prisoners for 20 months until the US negotiates a deal!
  • I hear they settled for $53 million worth in baby food & medicine, so we should be getting out of here soon!
