On the Brink: The Cuban Missile Crisis & Military Intelligence    NEW!

The Cuban Missile Crisis is the closest the world has ever come to WWIII. In the midst of the Cold War, the Soviet Union provoked a confrontation with the U.S. that quickly led to a massive buildup of military forces. This in turn resulted in extreme danger & stress, demanding the utmost skill & caution in diplomacy for both the military & political areas of our government. In just three days, the big picture as well as intimate personal recollections of this crisis & others will be covered.
