Thirteen Days (16-Dec-2000)

Director: Roger Donaldson

Writer: David Self

Based on a book: The Kennedy Tapes by Ernest R. May and Philip Zelikow

Keywords: Drama, Cuba, Cold War, POTUS, United Nations

Historical piece dramatizes John F. Kennedy's handling of the Cuban Missile Crisis.

ABSTRACT
American spy satellites uncovered evidence of the Soviet Union's intent to place nuclear missiles aimed at the United States in Cuba in 1962, producing a thirteen-day standoff in which American military forces led by then-President and Commander-in-Chief John F. Kennedy debated their course of action. Thirteen Days follows Kennedy and his men as they work to stave off a seemingly inevitable World War III. Excellent dramatization of the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962.
