The Paul Holdstock Lecture Part 1: The Cuban Missile Crisis

Friday 1st February 2013 - Starts 7pm



Expert lecturer Paul Holdstock examines the build up to the Cuban Missile Crisis, from the failed landing at the ‘bay of pigs’ to the Soviet decision to escalate military assistance in Cuba to nuclear level as well as the events of the crisis itself in October 1962. The outcome to the crisis resulted in a sharp deterioration in relations between Castro and Khrushchev.

This event takes place in the Ropetackle Mezzanine.

Please note, Part 2: Cuba From The 60s To 90s takes place on 7th February.
