History Facts - Cuban Missile Crisis
- In 1959, the leftist leader, Fidel Castro, took over the Caribbean nation of Cuba and formed an alliance with the Soviet Union. Cuba relied on the Soviets for military aid.
- In the early 60s, the US and Cuba engaged in a long series of clashes, both political and economic.
- The United States and the Soviet Union plunged into one of their biggest conflicts when an American U-2 spy plane pilot caught on camera a Soviet SS-4 medium-range missile being developed.
- On October 24, 1962, soviet ships bound for Cuba came very close to a line of U.S vessels that were enforcing a blockade. Had the Soviets breached the blockade, it would likely have sparked off an elaborate conflict - the Soviets stopped short of doing so.
- A 35-year old pilot, Major Rudolf Anderson, was the only United States combat casualty during the crisis, though all American soldiers claimed that they felt an impending sense of doom.
- Thirteen Days", a film starring Hollywood actor Kevin Costner, was released in 2000. The film captures the unfolding of events during the Cuban missile crisis.
