He has written and edited groundbreaking stories for the Miami Herald, Sallah was a 2012 Pulitzer finalist for a series that exposed deadly conditions in Florida’s assisted-living facilities. He writes for the Washington Post. Sallah is co-author (with Mitch Weiss) of The Yankee Comandante: The Untold Story of Courage, Passion, and One American’s Fight to Liberate Cuba (Lyons Press). William Morgan, a tough-talking ex-paratrooper, stunned family and friends when in 1957 he left Ohio to join freedom fighters in the mountains of Cuba. In just a year of fighting, the American revolutionary had altered the landscape of the Cold War. But Morgan believed they were fighting to liberate Cuba. Drawing on declassified FBI, CIA, and Army intelligence records, Pulitzer Prize–winning authors Michael Sallah and Mitch Weiss skillfully reveal the inner workings of the Cuban Revolution while detailing the incredible love story of a rebel nurse and an American street hero who left their mark on history.
