Fidel was a lawyer. In 1952 Fidel Castro became a candidate for Congress for the Cuban People's Party and he was the favorite for the next election. But General Fulgencio Batista, with the support of the armed forces, took control of the country. Castro with 123 men and women attacked the Moncada Army Barracks. He was arrested was sentenced to fifteen years in prison. He was released after two years. Castro left for Mexico where he began to plan another attempt to overthrow the Cuban government.

After building up a stock of guns and ammunition, Castro, Che Guevara, Juan Almeida, and eighty other rebels arrived in Cuba in 1956. This group became known as the July 26 Movement and they made their base in the Sierra Maestra Mountains. As the history shows he did not used the military but instead he used revolutionaries. He came in power on the 1th of January 1959.
