60th Anniversary of the Cuban Missile Crisis (October 1962)

For two weeks in the fall of 1962, billions of people around the world held their breath in fear of a nuclear confrontation between the Soviet Union and the USA.

The crisis was triggered in mid-October, when U.S. intelligence services confirmed that the USSR had deployed medium-range missiles in Cuba – located a mere 300 km from Florida – but roots of the crisis went back some time.

After overthrowing the dictator Fulgencio Batista in 1959 Fidel Castro tried to free Cuba from its dependence on the United States. In the course of this, Cuba moved closer to the Soviet Union. A conflict erupted that led to a CIA-led invasion of Batista's supporters in the Bay of Pigs in April 1961. In the wake of the spectacular failure of this attempted coup, the U.S. intelligence service, fearing the spread of the "communist virus," launched "Operation Moongoose," a secret program to sabotage and infiltrate the island nation. In 1962 the USSR set up missile sites on the strategically important island "to protect the Republic of Cuba from the USA," which ultimately put the situation on the verge of escalation. While the "hawks" within the hastily convened U.S. security staff demanded an immediate military strike, the "doves" successfully advocated restraint. On October 22, a naval blockade was imposed against Cuba. Five days later, however, the situation worsened perilously when an armed Soviet submarine was forced to surface and U.S. spy planes were fired at by Cuban flak.

Aware of the explosive nature of the conflict, the heads of government, John F. Kennedy and Nikita Khrushchev, meanwhile, exchanged several notes with each other.

They finally agreed that the Soviet Union would withdraw from Cuba if the U.S. in return guaranteed not to invade the country and - in a secret agreement - to withdraw the nuclear missiles that the U.S. had stationed in Turkey and directed at the USSR since 1959. On October 28, the two governments publicly announced their agreement, thus ending the so-called Cuban Missile Crisis.

While the U.S. broke off diplomatic relations with Castro's government and imposed a total travel ban as well as trade embargo on Cuba, the superpowers subsequently took the first steps toward a policy of détente.
