In 1983, the United States launched a military operation to remove the military junta that had taken over the Caribbean island of Grenada. This operation, code-named Urgent Fury, was held out by the Regan Administration as a major military success and a victory against communism. In some ways it was. In others it was a foregone conclusion, a victory against a discredited regime with little support internally or externally. Urgent Fury: Grenada 1983 examines the genesis of the Grenadian Revolution of 1979, the eventual fall of the Gairy Regime, and establishing of the English-speaking Caribbean’s only Soviet-bloc client state, albeit a short-lived one, and the rise and fall from grace of the populist Maurice Bishop. The growth and development of the People’s Revolutionary Armed Forces of Grenada are discussed and their strength, weapons and training are examined along with detail of Cuba’s military and civilian and presence and Castro’s agenda to influence the Grenadian Revolution.
