FC: We Didn't Start the Fire By: Rodolfo Postigo

1: Ernest Hemingway was a writer and journalist that was born on July 21, 1899. Since he was little he was a person with problems his mother treated him harshly and would dress him up with girl close. Ernest was a famous writer and journalist he was envied by many men because of his success and confidence. One of the things that made him famous was that most of the novels he wrote were things that he went through. For example his novel Farewell to arms he actually was in world war 2 as an ambulance of the Red Cross and got hit by a shell so the book was because of his experience. He wrote novels, stories and non-fiction novels. He was also a reporter in the beginning of his career. As I said he was a very troubled man he started his career as a big hit but then went doing writing peaces that were not as good and finally he couldn’t even finish a peace he got depressed and tried to kill himself he didn’t succeed but then in July of 1961 when he was at his house in Idaho he shot himself. | http://www.canalpatrimonio.com/imagftp/im150339Ernest_Hemingway_1950.jpg

2: Stranger in a Strange land By Robert A. Heinlein. This book was published in1961. It is about a child that was sent on one of the mars mission and was raised by the aliens when the humans died. On a second mission they did to mars the found him and they brought him back to earth. He didn’t have a really good idea o f what sex was so he was helped by doctors. The title gives some part of the story away because it says “Stranger in a Strange Land” so that means that he is a stranger in a land that he dosn't know. He wrote this book during the time that he was examining the difference between physical and emotional love. | http://rickischultz.files.wordpress.com/2010/03/stranger_in_a_strange_land_cover.jpg

3: In 1959 Fidel Castro over through the Cuban president Batista. People thought that Fidel was going to be a great president. Instead he wad the worst, he made Cuban people hate Cuba. People even escaped to the United States because they couldn’t live in a country like that. Cuban people were very tired of him. The people that escaped from Cuba to the United States were furious. They couldn’t believe that the beautiful country that they lived in was now a disaster because of one person. They wanted to overthrow him so they started the plan of invading Cuba and killing Fidel. This plan was then killed the Bay of Pigs. What happened was that the Cubans that lived in the United States hated Fidel obviously because they escaped so they got in contact with the cia in the united states to tell them about the plan and ask them if they would help them. The CIA and the government of the United States accepted they agreed that they would send aerial help. It was all set the plan was to be executed on April of 1961.
