October 24th 1962 - The beginning of the Cuban Missile Crisis

 

October 24th 1962: Following the deployment of Soviet missiles to Cuba, the U.S. imposes a naval blockade against Fidel Castros island nation. It is the beginning of the so-called Cuban missile crisis which put the world on the brink of nuclear war. U.S. President John F. Kennedy describes the operation as "quarantine". For him the blockade is an act of national defense meanwhile the Soviet Union denies its aggressive intentions against the United States. Only through the mediation of the UN the crisis can be resolved. The Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev orders his transport ships to turn around and removes the missiles. World Peace is saved.
