"The Other Missiles of October" is a slightly dry academic read. It provides good details and commentary about the the efforts to deploy IRBM missiles to the UK, Italy, and Turkey in the Eisenhower and Kennedy administrations. The focus shifts more directly onto the Jupiter missiles in Turkey and their role in both helping to both instigate and, later, to resolve the Cuban Missile Crisis.

A thorough exploration of the history of the Jupiter IRBM from their deployment to their dismantlement shortly after the Cuban missile crisis. Though dry from time to time, I found this a good companion for "Thirteen Days" as it adds a great deal of background and explores the wider political pressures of that period.
