Summary
"Over the last decade, research on the Cuban Missile Crisis has fueled debate about the risk of nuclear war in 1962. Greater insight has been gained into the attitudes and perceptions of the principal decision makers, Kennedy and Khrushchev. It is one of the arguments of this book that while the leaders were increasingly determined to avoid escalation, revelations about aspects at the operational level suggest the risk of inadvertent nuclear war was greater than assumed. How the nuclear threshold might have been crossed and what might then have happened are the focus of this book."--BOOK JACKET
