While much of the western world held its breath, terrified by the prospect of imminent nuclear war, what was happening in the USSR and Cuba?

Former BBC Moscow corespondent Allan Little presents a tale profoundly different from last week's story of slick subterfuge and secret tapes. Instead we hear of the hundreds of Cuban university students collected up and made to sleep in a baseball stadium, who woke the following morning to find themselves frontline soldiers. Over in Moscow, as John F Kennedy announced on TV the presence of Russian missiles in Cuba, President Khrushchev spent his most pivotal and dangerous night in a crumpled suit, sleeping on a couch in his office. The war where Kennedy rightly predicted "the fruits of victory would have been ashes in our mouths" was averted but Fidel Castro was infuriated by what he saw as a deal being struck by the two powers happy to use his country as a fighting ground. George W Bush - then 16 years old - is the tenth US President Castro has seen in office...
