Operation Doorbell refers to the Allied Invasion of Cuba at the later stages of World War III. This operation is also alternatively called the Battle for Cuba, the Allied Capture of Cuba, or Castro's Last Stand. The invasion was conducted after the Liberation of the Turks and Caicos Islands (which was occupied by Cuban forces in November 1989) by forces from the United States, the United Kingdom, Mexico, the Netherlands, Colombia, and Jamaica, which resulted into the overthrow of the communist regime and the capture of Fidel Castro.
The same sake of the operation comes from the fact that Cuba is just right at America's doorstep, being only 90 km away from the U.S. mainland; also due to the fact the should the United States invade, Cuba would in no doubt fall to the superiority of the U.S. military.
Cuba during World War III supported the Soviet Union due to the country being aligned with the USSR in the Cold War. The war dragging on to the Atlantic opened up new front. In order to support their Soviet allies, the Cuban Revolutionary Armed Force began attacking and invading nearby island nations in the Caribbean namely the Bahamas, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, and the Turks and Caicos Islands. The attack on a British Overseas Territory and a member of the Commonwealth of Nations provoked the United Kingdom to declare war on Cuba.
The Cuban Air Force began air raids on then-U.S. territory of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. Guantanamo Bay, longly disputed between Cuba and the United States in 1903, was besieged by the Cuban troops. Despite their overwhelming numbers, the military base's defenses ultimate held.
