One Minute to Midnight: Kennedy, Khrushchev, and Castro on the Brink of Nuclear War by Michael Dobbs
One Minute to Midnight is Washington Post reporter Michael Dobbs' retelling of the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962 based on the latest information uncovered and declassified. He focuses on the actions of the American, Soviet, and Cuban armies and well as the politicians and generals that brought us to the brink of the nuclear war. One Minute to Midnight has received positive reviews with the New York Times saying, "Any new entry in the crowded field of books on the 1962 Cuban missile crisis must pass an immediate test: Is it just another recapitulation, or does it increase our net understanding of this seminal cold war event? By focusing on the activities of the American, Soviet and Cuban militaries during those tense October days, Michael Dobbs's One Minute to Midnight passes this test with flying colors. The result is a book with sobering new information about the world's only superpower nuclear confrontation - as well as contemporary relevance."
