In October 1962, at the height of the Cold War, the United States and the Soviet Union came to the brink of nuclear conflict over the deployment of Soviet missiles to Cuba. Author Michael Dobbs has pored over previously untapped American, Soviet and Cuban sources to provide the most authoritative book yet on the Cuban missile crisis. In this NYT bestselling book, Dobbs take us inside the White House and the Kremlin as Kennedy and Khrushchev--rational, intelligent men separated by an ocean of ideological suspicion--agonize over the possibility of war.
