Camilo Cienfuegos Gorriarán (1932-1959) was a Cuban revolutionary born in Havana. Along with Fidel Castro, Che Guevara, Juan Almeida Bosque, and Raúl Castro, he was a member of the 1956 Granma expedition, which launched Fidel Castro’s armed insurgency against the government of Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista. He became one of Castro’s top guerilla commanders, known as the “Hero of Yaguajay” after winning a key battle of the Cuban Revolution.
He was appointed head of Cuba’s armed forces shortly after the victory of Castro’s rebel army in 1959. He was presumed dead when a small plane he was traveling in disappeared during a night flight from Camagüey to Havana later that year. Many have speculated and conspiracies have arisen concerning his mysterious disappearance. Cienfuegos, whose name translates in English to “a hundred fires,” is revered in Cuba as a hero of the Revolution, with monuments, memorials, and an annual celebration in his honor.
