Opis

The former Belgian Congo became an important theatre
of the Cold War in the early 1960s. The USA
supported the Congolese Government directly while
also supporting the UN initiatives in the Congo.
This necessitated some covert operations by the CIA
when the above objectives conflicted. The attempts
in 1962 to provide the Congo with air support
against Katanga was a prime example of Washington
hedging its bets by pursuing several parallel
solutions. One of these tracks involved having the
CIA set up an air unit with old trainer aircraft
obtained from Belgian stocks and piloted by Cuban
veterans from the Bay of Pigs. This account, which
is based on extensive archival research and
interviews, chronicles the political events and
decisions in the Congo and Washington that led to
the involvement of the CIA. It also describes the
practical steps needed to actually create the air
unit.
