Camilo rose from an undisciplined fighter to a brilliant, disciplined captain of the point platoon, the most dangerous position in the war.
Camilo, who was not a communist, became immensely popular among Cubans, but not quite as popular as Fidel Castro.
Over the years, some have charged that Camilo was "probably killed by Castro," but historians seem to agree that Camilo's death is more likely to have been an accident, and not the result of foul play.

Camilo was the companion of a hundred battles, the intimate counselor of Fidel in difficult moments of the war, the stoic fighter who always made of sacrifice an instrument for steeling his own character and forging the morale of his troops.
But Camilo should not be seen as an isolated hero performing marvelous feats only on the impulse of his individual genius, but rather as a true part of the people that formed him, as it always forms its heroes, martyrs, and leaders, by selection in a rigorous struggle.
Camilo practiced loyalty like a religion; he was its votary, both in his personal loyalty to Fidel, who embodied as no one else the will of the people, and in his loyalty to the people themselves.

Camilo Cienfuegos Gorriarán (February 6, 1932 - October 28, 1959) was a Cuban revolutionary born in Havana.
Other sources tend to agree with Franqui, though it is clear that Cienfuegos was not a hard-line Soviet Communist.
According to Roberto Cardenas, a Captain in the Cuban Air Force, Cienfuegos was shot down because he refused to countenance the incarceration of Huber Matos, a hero of the revolution who had quietly resigned through a private letter but was imprisoned by Fidel Castro for twenty-two years under the wrongful charge of "treason."

Born from a low-class family and son of an anarchist, Camilo was forced to leave school and work as a tailor; at the age of 23, during a students' parade, was wounded by the troops of Batista and that episode convinced him that the right path to follow was the one of Fidèl.
During his revolutionary career, from undisciplined soldier he became a valuable Commander, head of nearly 700 men acting mainly around Camaguey and the northern part of las Villas, while Che Guevara was proceeding in the southern zone of the province.
During his life his popularity was comparable to the one of Castro, and still nowadays he's an icon of the Revolution; for his social extraction and for the love he received from the people, Che Guevara described him as the "image of the people".

Together with his brother Raùl, Che Guevara, Camilo Cienfuegos and many others, left the coasts of Mexico in December 1956 aboard the yacht Granma, to lead the final offensive that resulted, in 1959, into Batista's exile and in the conquer of power by the Barbudos, nickname given by the people to the revolutionaries.
The movement led by Castro had a strong equalitarian connotation and was supported by the church at the beginning; when Castro nationalized all the industries in Cuba in the 60s, the Marxist face of the Revolution showed-up, and was the beginning of exile for many Cubans.
His troops acted, together with the ones of Camilo Cienfuegos, in the zone of Santa Clara and Camaguey, cutting the island in two, breaking the front of Batista's governmental troops.
