This is what I learned from reading Julia Sweig's "Inside the Cuban 
Revolution: Fidel Castro and the Urban Underground". I borrowed the book 
from the Columbia library and can't give you much more than a reference 
to Frank Pais organizing sabotage activities on p. 16 of her 
introduction in https://books.google.com/books?isbn=0674044193. I read 
the book, I should add, mostly because it is a primary source for the 
mass urban component of the July 26th Movement that refutes the claim by 
Sam Farber and Tony Gonzalez that it was rural guerrilla warfare that 
accounted for the fall of Batista.
