"The 'countdown to the Third World War' began on Sunday, October 14, 1962. As we follow the crisis, we learn of President Kennedy's back-channel diplomacy, while his general staff considered an American air attack on Cuba to be inevitable. But then the world breathed a sigh of relief on October 28, when the voice of the Kremlin broadcast over radio that the government had ordered the dismantling of the weapons in Cuba as well as their crating and shipment to the Soviet Union."
