Soviet Missile Sites in Cuba

Soviet Missile Sites in Cuba

This map depicts the location of Soviet missiles throughout the island of Cuba.  The U.S. government learned about the existence of these installations - as they were being constructed - leading to the "Cuban Missile Crisis." 

For thirteen days, in October of 1962, the world stood at the brink of nuclear war as the U.S. insisted that the Soviet Union remove their missiles from the Caribbean island ... and the Soviets refused.
