"Thirteen Days" - Cuban missile crisis

We watched a riveting film about the Cuban missile crisis in October 1962 when the then US President John F Kennedy faced a nerve-wracking escalation as the Soviets built up a presence of nuclear missiles on Cuba, all within striking distance of 1000 miles within the USA. The world came so close to disaster.

The film stars Kevin Costner, one of my favourite actors, who played the part of the President's aide, Kenneth O'Donnell.

"As Hollywood history lessons go, Thirteen Days is riveting stuff. You may find yourself wondering what might happen if reality presented a repeat scenario under less intelligent leadership." - Jeff Shannon,
