Abyss – The Cuban Missile Crisis 1962
Sunday 25th September, 12-1pm
Baillie Gifford Big Tent
Marking the sixtieth anniversary of the Cuban Missile Crisis, we are delighted to welcome Max Hastings back to BookFest to discuss his new book Abyss.
Max Hastings’s graphic and brilliant new history tells the story from the viewpoints of national leaders, Russian officers, Cuban peasants, American pilots and British disarmers to describe the nail-biting 13 days in which Armageddon beckoned.
‘A work of considerable quality, marked by a possibly unique combination of military expertise, historical grasp and journalistic skill’ The Observer
Chaired by Stefan Stern.
