February 5, 2016: In 1962 Moscow implemented a clandestine plan to locate nuclear-capable surface-to-surface missiles in Cuba. In response, the United States blockaded the island of Cuba by surrounding it with naval ships, creating an umbrella of Air Force interceptors and bombers, and positioning surface-to-air and surface-to-surface missiles in South Florida. These events brought the world to the brink of thermonuclear war and the potential for mutually assured destruction (MAD) of humankind. An essay by Charles Carter.
