  2. Cuban Missile Crisis (ThinkQuest 11046)
      "The Cuban Missile Crisis was the closest the world ever came to nuclear war. The United States armed forces were at their highest state of readiness ever and Soviet field commanders in Cuba were prepared to use battlefield nuclear weapons to defend the island if it was invaded."

      "If you want to know everything about the Crisis, however, go to the Crisis Center where the tension begins. The site is also filled with tons of other goodies including the Recon Room, dossiers on the Major Players, and a Situation Room. Before leaving the site be sure to stop by the Debriefing Room to post your thoughts and questions on the message board and take a quiz to test your knowledge on the events of October 1962." 8-02
