In 1962, the Soviet Union amassed an arsenal of nuclear missiles in Cuba, which lies some 70 miles off the coast of Florida. Four Russian submarines discovered in the Caribbean provoked a standoff that brought the world perilously close to nuclear war. Hear exclusive interviews with former Soviet naval commanders and former White House aides and view archival footage of unfolding events.
