5.0 out of 5 stars A breakthrough text, 13 Feb 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: One Hell of a Gamble: Krushchev, Castro, Kennedy and the Cuban Missile Crisis, 1958-62 (Paperback)
The Cuban Missile Crisis was the climax of the Cold War. However for western scholars the writings on this darkest hour of the Cold War have remained very biased - until now. Fursenko and Naftali have written a truly open account of the missile crisis using extensive Soviet sources. The underlying elements of the crisis are exposed revealing a very different nature to the crisis, especially from the Cuban and Soviet side, than previously believed.
Not only is this book a breakthrough study, it is also an enjoyable read, a rarity for many books of this type. The book is therefore accessible to both the experienced historian and the general reader. To both it will provide an informative read.
