November 12, 2008 — How close did the world come to war in during those 13 days in October of 1962? Perilously close, recounts Michael Dobbs in his recent book, "One Minute to Midnight:
Kennedy, Khrushchev, and Castro on the Brink of Nuclear War."
Dobbs, a Washington Post reporter who has written extensively on world affairs and politics, will appear Friday at the Miller Center of Public Affairs at the University of Virginia.
His talk will be held at 11 a.m. at the center, 2201 Old Ivy Road. The presentation will be webcast live and archived at the Miller Center Web site.
