“This kind of his­tory is im­por­tant”

“I like to write be­cause peo­ple think some sub­jects aren’t as in­ter­est­ing as they are. There’s a lot of talk about nu­clear bombs to­day, but there was the Cuban mis­sile cri­sis in the Cold War. The US dropped grenades on a Soviet sub­ma­rine, not know­ing there were nu­clear tor­pe­does. This kind of his­tory is im­por­tant be­cause most peo­ple don’t know how close they were to the world end­ing. No one is all good but no one is all bad, ei­ther.”

Pres­i­dent Kennedy was in charge of the US dur­ing the cri­sis.
