oct 16, 1962 - Cuban Missile Crisis

Description:

an international crisis in October 1962, the closest approach to nuclear war at any time between the U.S. and the USSR. When the U.S. discovered Soviet nuclear missiles on Cuba, President John F. Kennedy demanded their removal and announced a naval blockade of the island; the Soviet leader Khrushchev agreed to the U.S. demands a week later. We also removed nuclear missiles in Cuba. The crisis was the closest the world came to nuclear war.
