Minute-by-minute account of 1962 missile crisis between US and USSR. Mainly written from the US perspective, but still many details from the Soviet side too. Very dramatic at times and some very exciting details about the decision making and tactics at that time. Chilling and "scary" read at times, but thoroughly enjoyable.
