This resource offers a very easy to navigate and attractive interface to a good range of information and documents on the Cuban Missile Crisis. Its main strength is the international perspectives it offers. Especially valuable is the Brinkmanship section where press coverage from Cuba, USSR, China, U.S., France, Britain, and Germany are presented.

Technical Remarks:

The site is easy to use and navigate, would benefit from the ability to print out documents for class use and better sourcing of documents.
