After a failed attack on the Moncada Barracks, Castro fled to mexico with other revolutionaries. Here he met Ernesto "che" Guevera, and started a campaign of guerilla warfare against the government of Cuba. Through the years of fighting Castro gained support and started moving through Cuba with a series of attacks on centers of people still loyal to the government of Cuba. On january 1st 1959, Castro sentenced the old president to exile and by February of the same year Castro took power of Cuba. In the following moths, Castro became close allies with Soviet Russia and created a communist government loosly based after the russians. In the 1960's America started to secretly try and remove Castro from power. in 1961 American trained cuban exiles tried to re-take the government, but failed because Castro was informed of the plot and was ready for them. The next year, Castro agreed to allow the Russians to begin building nuclear missile launch pads in Cuba. The American government discovered the plans and set up a blockade around cuba and caused russia to withdraw its missiles. While in power, it was estimated that there were 638 attempts on Castro's life by the CIA, all failing of course. The following years Cuba had very strained relations with America which caused a trade embargo with cuba that still is in effect today.
