Outstanding Cuban Revolution military directive issued by Fidel, Raul, and Che

Remarkable DS in Spanish, one page, 8.25 x 7, February 29, 1958. Document authorizing Captain Ciro Frias to implement all measures he deems necessary to ensure the smooth progress of the operations in the east of the country, as well as to apply all provisions of the criminal code if made necessary by circumstances or by lack of military discipline. Signed at the conclusion by Fidel Castro, “Fidel Castro R”; Raul Castro, “R Castro Ruz”; and Che Guevara, “Che.” Also countersigned by Captain Ciro Frias. In very good condition, with intersecting folds, small edge tears, a burn hole to the main text, dampstaining to one corner, staple holes to the right edge, and significant spreading to ink in Raul Castro’s signature. This comes from two weeks after one of the rebel army’s key victories at the Second Battle of Pino de Agua, in which Captain Ciro Frias operated under Raul Castro’s command. Frias was killed in battle at Imias on April 9, 1958— just six weeks after signing this document—while trying to capture the territory near Guantanamo. An incredible military document signed by three of the Cuban Revolution’s most important leaders, dating to a significant turning point leading up to their final victory the following year. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA.
