Former Cuban president Fidel Castro says he will release the first volume of his memoirs in August.

The book, The Strategic Victory, will focus on the story of how a few hundred revolutionaries under his command defeated the Cuban Army in 1958, the BBC reports.

It will include pictures, maps and plans of the armed offensive against the Cuban military ruler Fulgencio Batista.
