I am currently working my way through my first "game" of Cuba Libre by means of recreating the playbook situation. So far the game looks _very_ interesting and the playbook is absolutely helpful.

Now, on page 12 in the playbook M26 places two Guerrillas and removes one police cube. At the end of this move there are:

5 gov Army cubes
1 gov police cube
1 gov base
---
7
===

AND

2 M26 Guerrilla
4 DR Guerrilla
1 DR Base
---
7
===

in the hex. Hence, the government no longer has more pieces than all other groups combined in the hex and should therefor loose its control over Las Villas, yet this is not displayed in the accompanying graphic, nor is it in the following graphic.

I check the FAQ document and this "error" is not listed in the FAQs, so I am wondering whether I am playing something wrong here or whether there really is a mistake in the rulebook which just has not been reported or documented yet.

If you suspect that there's a mistake after a little bit of investigation then you're probably right, because there are a lot of mistakes. Don't get me wrong, it's very well done but there's quite a few editing problems.

Here's the current errata for Cuba Libre, but this isn't in there. I looked over that part of the playbook and it does look like you are right. Fire off an email to GMT with what you've written up there.

Volko will eventually reply and, once validated, add it to the errata.

Hello! Sorry for the delay! I have added this erratum to the Errata thread here on BGG, which is much easier for me to update than what is hosted on GMT's website. Thanks for the catch! Best regards, Volko
