This book, written by a participant in the Cuban Missile Crisis, focuses on the nature, consequences, and lessons of the crisis. It integrates personal memoirs with historical analysis and political interpretation. The book provides insights into how military force and diplomacy led to the crisis and were used to resolve it. The U.S. and Soviet positions are carefully examined, as well as the long term legacies of that critical period in the Cold War. An appendix contains ten memoranda written during the crisis by the author, who was a staff-level advisor in the U.S. Department of State at the time. The book may be of interest to historians and students of U.S. national security policy.
