        Cuban Missile Crisis: Three Men Go to War | 'The Most Dangerous Time for the Human Race'

        This clip begins with a statement by President Kennedy; that this time period is the most dangerous for the human race. As confirmation of that statement a pilot who participated in missions over Cuba describes the fear that the small and beautiful island was dangerous to him and to the United States. The powerful images of nuclear weapons exploding illustrate the potential outcome of the Cuban Missile Crisis and further support Kennedy’s claim. Several historians describe this period as a dangerously narrow escape from nuclear world war with three leaders deciding the fate of mankind.
