The Tug of War

Large Mixed Cast

David Rambo Price: $8.99

In October 1962, the nation’s young president, John F. Kennedy, learns the Soviet Union is building military bases in Cuba — only 90 miles from the U.S. coast

Despite Soviet assurances that the build-up is solely for Cuba’s defensive capability, Kennedy learns that the Soviets have been lying

Their Cuban installations comprise a nuclear missile force capable of wiping out most of the continental United States

In an act of brilliant courage, Kennedy resists his urge to bomb the installations immediately

Instead, he assembles a committee of the best and brightest minds to debate what action the U.S. should take

As the stakes rise by the day … the hour … the minute … the second … the president weighs conflicting counsel from his national security team, the military, and his brother, Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy

But the clock on human survival is ticking

Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev is behaving more and more erratically

And the two rival leaders hold the fate of the world in their hands

Drawn from White House Cuban Missile Crisis files and recordings, The Tug of War is a heart-pounding battle of intellect and hubris
