In GCSE History students will look at the Cold War, which lasted from the end of World War II until the fall of the Soviet Union. One part of the Cold War they will focus on is the Cuba Crisis of 1962.
In October 1962 the Cold War nearly became a nuclear conflict. President Kennedy, of the United States, faced the threat of Soviet missiles with nuclear warheads poised to attack the USA from Castro's Cuba. This became known as the Cuban Missile Crisis and all the world waited nervously for a peaceful outcome.
