Camilo Cienfuegos Gorriarán (Spanish: [kaˈmilo sjeɱˈfweɣoz ɣorjaˈɾan]; 6 February 1932 – 28 October 1959) was a Cuban progressive conceived in Havana. Alongside Fidel Castro, Che Guevara, Juan Almeida Bosque, and Raúl Castro, he was an individual from the 1956 Granma undertaking, which propelled Fidel Castro’s equipped revolt against the administration of Cuban despot Fulgencio Batista. He ended up one of Castro’s top guerilla administrators, known as the “Legend of Yaguajay” in the wake of winning a key skirmish of the Cuban Revolution. His mark weapon was the Thompson submachine firearm.
He was delegated leader of Cuba’s military soon after the triumph of Castro’s revolutionary armed force in 1959. He was assumed dead when a little plane he was going in vanished during a night departure from Camagüey to Havana soon thereafter. Many have hypothesized and schemes have emerged concerning his strange vanishing. Cienfuegos, whose name makes an interpretation of in English to “a hundred flames,” is worshipped in Cuba as a saint of the Revolution, with landmarks, commemorations, and a yearly festival in his respect.
