The year is 1962. In October of this year, a series of surveillance photos ends up revealing that not only is the Soviet Union producing nuclear weapons, but that they are also placing them in Cuba. These weapons are dangerous beyond imagination and contain the power to destroy a huge deal of the Southern United States. President John F. Kennedy and his cabinet must create a plan to use against the Soviets. Although he has shown that he has the courage to stand up against the Soviet Union, the Pentagon decides that the military needs to strike against Cuba so that they can invade the island itself before any bombs are set off. However, Kennedy does not wish to invade Cuba because the Soviets may then attack Europe, which may lead to the inevitable destruction of much of the world via nuclear weapons.
