In 1984 the Central Intelligence Agency produced a comic book for the people of Grenada denouncing Communism.  The comic book was air dropped over the country as part of an invasion by the United States and a few allies.  President Reagan worried about a Communist friendly government and used the safety of 800 medical students as a reason to invade the tiny country.

This was an interesting moment in history as it shows off American military action that many people don’t remember and is a physical item produced by and American agency that’s rather secretive in their endeavors.

You can learn more about the Grenada invasion here.

The cover says “Number 1 of a series.”  Our question is what’s in the rest of the series?  Did the CIA produce one for each of our invasions?



Ah government propaganda, isn’t it fun?  You can read the full comic book at http://www.ep.tc/grenada/.

Thanks for http://www.ep.tc/ and it’s amazing collection of these fantastic nuggets of history.
