A must read for anyone interested in the history of the Missile
A must read for anyone interested in the history of the Missile Crisis! Blue Moon Over Cuba gives a vivid account of how VFP-62's high-speed, low-altitude photography provided President Kennedy and policymakers in Washington with detailed photographic evidence of Soviet construction of medium and intermediate-range ballistic missiles in Western Cuba, allowing photo interpreters and the intelligence community to identify precisely what weapons were being prepared, how fast construction was progressing, and to provide the President of an estimate of when the missiles would become operational.Was this review helpful?

This is an important book about a select group of aviators on the front lines during perhaps the most dangerous moment of the Cold War, giving a detailed account of how heavily the intelligence community, and the President of the United States, relied on aerial reconnaissance to navigate a way out of a confrontation that had the world on the brink of nuclear war in October 1962.
