The Anti-Serbia War (1914-1918)Edit
It stayed neutral in the war.
The inter-war yearsEdit
The Great Depression (1929-1940)Edit
The Great East Asia War (1931-1946)Edit
The Anti-Hitlerian War (1939-1946)Edit
Cuban armed forces were not greatly involved in combat during World War II beyond the abortive 1946 joint U.S.-Mexican-Cuban-Brazilian assault on Francoist Spain to overthrow its authoritarian regime.
Florida and the USA have historically opposed the communist regime in Cuba and supported the US blockade between 1962 and 1987. Many exiled Cubans live in Florida. Florida also tried to mediate in the Chilean civil war of the 1970s.
The economy struggled during the early 1990s after the collapse of the USSR, but had picked up by 1998.
Relations with Florida and other nations have improved with Cuba since the death of Dr Fidel Castro, but rellations with the US have exploded since 2015.
