For 13 days in October 1962, during the Cuban Missile Crisis, the US and the USSR came perilously close to nuclear war. President Kennedy said later the chances were "between one-in-three and even." Although the confrontation is one of the most studied events of all time, the previous unavailability of classified material left many questions unanswered. This book is a product of the CIA's new openness. It contains many of the CIA's formerly top-secret cables, maps, memorandums, estimates and briefing papers, organized according to the date of the subject matter - the Cuban Missile Crisis. The book includes documents on Operation Mongoose, the CIA's clandestine programme to destabilize the Castro regime.
