oct 16, 1962 - Cuban Missile Crisis

Description:

This was the absolute height of the cold war. During this time, the Communists and the capitalists were at a 13 day standoff, each with missiles pointed at each other. The Americans had their missiles in Turkey while the Soviets had their missiles in Cuba. Tension was dissolved when both parties agreed to remove arms.
