  1. Fidel helped Cuba obtain independence from Batista, but essentially formed his own dictatorship.

    Since this is not my area of expertise, I searched Google under the key words "Fidel Castro" to get these possible sources:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fidel_Castro
    http://library.thinkquest.org/18355/fidel_castro.html

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/244974.stm
    http://www.biography.com/search/article.do?id=9241487

    In the future, you can find the information you desire more quickly, if you use appropriate key words to do your own search. Also see http://hanlib.sou.edu/searchtools/.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
