Cuban Missile Crisis – On April 17, 1961, some 12,000 Cuban exiles landed at Cuba’s Bay of Pigs with the aim of overthrowing the Castro government and set up a democratic government. However, Castro quickly crushed the uprising, and moved closer towards the Soviets for protection. In 1962, aerial photographs revealed the Soviets were installing nuclear bombs in Cuba, beginning a game of nuclear chicken. On October 22, 1962, Kennedy ordered a naval quarantine of Cuba and demanded immediate removal of threatening weaponry. On October 28th, Khrushchev agreed to pull out the missiles in return for removal of American missiles in Turkey.
