A picture that I saw recently where he was wearing his olive-colored uniform, showed him very young for his years. There is no date on your pictures, but apparently the latest must be the one where he is wearing the cap with the star on it. He doesn’t really look that young in those pictures. He looks better on the three pictures where he is wearing the cap without the star. You also mention that he needed help getting to the podium. According to the article I read that accompanied the picture wearing his uniform and the cap with the star, he was trying to gain back the reigns of his country, which he had ceded to his younger brother, and in that picture he appeared younger and refreshed. But if the latest of your pictures are the ones where he wears the cap with the star, then I doubt that he can regain control of Cuba for long, as those pictures show him as an old man.

Very interesting follow up. One has to kind of leave out their political opinions over the person or the war and the people involved.
That way you get the pictures without prejudice. Outstanding pictures you got there, Desmond. Thanks.
