Summary

On October 14, 1962, an American spy plane spotted Soviet missile sites on the island nation of Cuba. This discovery launched the world's two most powerful nations, the United States and the Soviet Union, into a dramatic thirteen-day conflict. U.S. President John F. Kennedy faced the grim possibility of nuclear war as he and his advisors tried to avert World War III. Cuban Missile Crisis: In the Shadow of Nuclear War chronicles the tense moments of this high-stakes standoff. Book jacket.
