Dobbs takes us inside the White House and the Kremlin as Kennedy and Khrushchev agonize over the possibility of war. He shows how these two leaders recognized the terrifying realities of the nuclear age while Castro - never swayed by conventional political considerations - demonstrated the messianic ambition of a man selected by history for a unique mission. Dobbs brings us onto the decks of American ships patrolling Cuba; inside sweltering Soviet submarines and missile units as they ready their warheads; and onto the streets of Miami, where anti-Castro exiles plot the dictator's overthrow.

Most extensive report on Cuban Missile Crisis
This is definitely the most extensive report on the Cuban Missile Crisis I've came across so far. It covers the events from all perspectives (USA, USSR, Cuba) and also gives a lot of historical background. Although every one knows the outcome, it is written in a very exciting way. The author has revealed a few new facts about the crisis with this book, and in retrospect it is a miracle that all of this has not lead to nuclear war. Hopefully our leaders these days know their history and cool heads will prevail, because looking at current-day events (especially in North Korea, but also USA vs. Russia, USA vs. China, etc.) makes me wonder where all of this is heading.
