  • The son of impoverished farmers, Batista worked in a variety of jobs until he joined the army in 1921, starting as a stenographer. He rose to the rank of sergeant and developed a large personal following. In September 1933 he organized the “sergeants’ revolt”; it toppled the provisional regime ofCarlos Manuel de Céspedes, which had replaced the dictatorial regime ofGerardo Machado y Morales. In the process Batista became the most powerful man in Cuba and the country’s de facto leader.

    An astute judge of men, Batista preferred to consolidate his control through patronage rather than terror. He cultivated the support of the army, the civil service, and organized labour. Ruling through associates the first few years, he was electedpresidentin 1940. While greatly enriching himself, he also governed the country most effectively, expanding the educational system, sponsoring a huge program of public works, and fostering the growth of the economy.

    After his term ended in 1944, Batista traveled abroad and lived for a while in Florida, where he invested part of the huge sums he had acquired in Cuba. During the eight years that he was out of power in Cuba, there was a resurgence of corruption on a grand scale, as well as a virtual breakdown of public services. His return to power, through a bloodless military coup that deposed Pres.Carlos Prío Socarrásin March 1952, was widely welcomed. But he returned as a brutal dictator, controlling the university, the press, and the Congress, and he embezzled huge sums from the soaring economy. In 1954 and ’58 the country held presidential elections that, though purportedly “free,” were manipulated to make Batista the sole candidate. His regime was finally toppled by the rebel forces led byFidel Castro, who launched their successful attack in the fall of 1958. Faced with the collapse of his regime and with the growing discontent of his supporters, Batista fled with his family to theDominican Republicon January 1, 1959. Later he went into exile on the Portuguese island of Madeira and finally settled inEstoril, nearLisbon.

  • (1901-73). A common soldier who became the dictator of Cuba, Fulgencio Batista ruled the island nation twice, from 1933 to 1944 and from 1952 to 1959. Overthrown by the revolutionary leader Fidel Castro in 1959, Batista spent the rest of his life in exile
