In October 1962, at the height of the Cold War, the United States and the Soviet Union appeared to be sliding toward a nuclear conflict over the placement of missiles in Cuba. Washington Post reporter Michael Dobbs has pored over untapped American, Soviet, and Cuban sources to produce the most authoritative book yet on the Cuban missile crisis. In his hour-by-hour chronicle of those near-fatal days, Dobbs reveals some startling new incidents that illustrate how close we came to Armageddon.
