A Synopsis of what happened in 1962

The Russians announce they are to build missile bases on Cuba and send missiles to Cuba by sea. America blockades the sea around Cuba and the world readies itself for nuclear conflict. JFK advises the American public to build nuclear fallout shelters. At the last minute, Russia backs down and the ships return home with the missiles still on board.
