The words "nuclear war" strike fear into the hearts of people all over the world. Movies and books depict the apocalyptic aftermath of such an event. While fictitious accounts may not be totally accurate, in October 1962, the United States came perilously close to finding out the reality of such a catastrophe during the Cuban Missile Crisis. For thirteen days, the country teetered on the verge of nuclear war. Through engaging text, accompanied by dynamic images and intriguing sidebars, students will learn exactly how close the nation came to World War III and how the country was pulled back from the brink.
