Oh the Caribbean Crisis. Ugh. Awful time in history.

The world came about, literally, 45 seconds from nuclear war. Thanks to the Soviets it escalated (well, American missiles in Turkey were a huge problem too, actually) and thanks to Vasily Aleksandrovich Arkhipov, it came to an end.

Odd thing was that the Soviet government already had tactical nuclear warheads in Cuba. So, if the US invaded, those would have been used. The US simply missed the first delivery to Castro. They never knew until after the union fell and documents were released/leaked in 1992, that 30 years before, Cuba had nuclear warheads and a soviet commander of those missiles was stationed in Cuba until the end of the Union.
