Cuban Missile Crisis Explained

Today, after spending some time reading a memoir of the Cuban Missile Crisis by Robert F. Kennedy, I found an interesting website that I hope to exploit more soon. The website comes out of the Presidential library, and has tons of information on "the closest the United States ever came to nuclear war." 

This website even contained clips from meetings held during the critical thirteen days, and it has really helped me to better understand this event, which was not very clear at the time when it happened. I think it is an excellent resource, and I will continue to learn from it in the next couple days.
