The paperback Thirteen Days book takes a look at the pivotal crisis between the two nations as no other book on the subject can. Senator Robert F. Kennedy relays his experiences at the time as his brother, President Kennedy, grappled with a clear and present nuclear threat. A landmark Cuban missile crisis book, Thirteen Days reveals the thoughts and emotions that led to the decisions during that tense period in 1962.

The paperback Thirteen Days book is a unique, gripping account of the perilous showdown between the United States and the Soviet Union. During the thirteen days in October 1962 when the United States confronted the Soviet Union over its installation of missiles in Cuba, few people shared the behind-the-scenes story as it is told here by the late Senator Robert F. Kennedy. In the Cuban missile crisis book, Thirteen Days, in a clear and simple record, he describes the personalities involved in the crisis, with particular attention to the actions and attitudes of his brother, President John F. Kennedy. He describes the daily, even hourly, exchanges between Russian representatives and American. The American history book Thirteen Days presents, in firsthand immediacy, the frightening responsibility of two great nations holding the fate of the world in their hands.

Shop for the paperback Thirteen Days book for an insider's view of the 1962 crisis that shook the world.
