In October 1962, Washington pushed the world to the edge of nuclear war. Here, for the first time, the full story of that historic moment is told from the perspective of the Cuban people, whose determination to defend their sovereignty and their socialist revolution blocked U.S. plans for a military assault and saved humanity from the consequences of a nuclear holocaust.
“Draws largely from published US, Soviet, and Cuban primary sources, as well as from interviews with participants in the confrontation.… Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above.”—Choice
“Vital to a full understanding of the Cuban Missile Crisis … beautifully edited and illustrated … highly appropriate for any course in modern Caribbean politics, cold war history, Cuban history, or military history … a full and sincere look at the often overlooked Cuban perspective.…”—Russell W. Ramsey,
Troy State University, in Hispanic American Historical Review
