50th Anniversary of the Cuban Missile Crisis

EBRPL Cool, EBRPL Online Resource

This month marks the 50th anniversary of the Cuban Missile Crisis — a seminal event in US foreign relations and the hottest month of our Cold War with the USSR.

Foreign Policy magazine has created a site devoted to the Crisis with plenty of pictures and commentary — but the most interesting part is their Twitter feed.  The feed is chronicling the crisis in “real” time and so far has captured some of the tension generated when the world really was on the brink of nuclear war.
