In stock

Read RFK’s account of the Cuban Missile Crisis in October, 1962, when the United States confronted the Soviet Union over its installation of missiles in Cuba. In this unique behind-the-scenes story, RFK describes each of the participants during the sometimes hour-to-hour negotiations, with particular attention to the actions and views of his brother, President John F. Kennedy.

“As a principle figure in resolving the crisis Robert Kennedy brings to it extraordinary authority, with his own insights, perspectives and very important revelations of the decision-making process at the highest level, on the brink of nuclear holocaust.” - David Schoenbrun, New York Times Book Review
