Extremely hard to follow
10 September 2018 | by scmathisen98037-92-424311See all my reviews

It seems to follow some sort of alternate history but since most of the content is in Spanish, German, or French I cannot really tell. I would really like to know the history of Cuba, but it needs to be in a format that I can make sense of.
