What is the Cuban Missile Crisis?

The Cuban Missile Crisis occurred in 1962, following the US failed attempt of invading Cuba the previous year. The Cuban Missile Crisis is the building of nuclear missile station in Cuba by the Soviet Union, so that Cuba could defend itself from being invaded by the US. The Cuban Missile Crisis was averted on October 28, when an agreement was reached between the US and Soviet Union for the dismantling and removal of the nuclear weapons.
