The Cuban Missile Crisis, as it is known in the United States (US), occurred in October 1962. It was a naval military standoff that took place in the Caribbean Sea off the coast of Cuba between the two superpowers: the US and the Union of the Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR). Lasting thirteen days, it marked the height of the Cold War tensions, and was the closest the two nations had actually come to an outright war, which could in turn have led to a nuclear confrontation.
