5.0 von 5 Sternen A piercing account of cold war foreign policy, 24. Januar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
In One Hell of a Gamble, Fursenko and Naftali cut to the heart of the Cuban Missile Crisis and the surrounding politics. Due to the end of the Cold War, they were able to obtain many first-hand accounts of the superpower rivalry from the participants themselves. Using this newfound knowledge, they craft a timeless account of the behind-the-scenes politics that formed the backbone of US-Soviet relations during the Kennedy era. A chilling perspective is offered on how close the world really came to nuclear annihilation in the fall of 1962. Congrats to Fursenko and Naftali for producing a gripping work that I highly recommend to all students of the Cold War or politics in general.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Explicitly well-documented, the real story behind it all, 6. Januar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Naftali and Fursenko have done a fascinating job in this tremendously engrossing book about the prelude, climax, and aftermath of the Cuban Missile Crisis. A complete revelation of the personalites of the three players, Kennedy, Khrushchev, and Castro is compelling and informative. The reader will walk away with a new found appreciation for the back-channel diplomacy utilized at the height of the crisis, Overall, just a fine scholarly work, a must for all interested in international relations.

4.0 von 5 Sternen I though it was great, 13. Dezember 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Often a side goes in front of a judge thinking it knows the whole story only to find out to their horror that they do not. So its is true with much of the history of the cold war. Up to now Western historians thought they knew most of the story, only now to find out that much of what they knew is based on having only half the story. With this book gives us an idea of what the Russians were thinking and what their aims were. It certainly changed many conceptions that I had over what took place.

5.0 von 5 Sternen One Hell of a Gamble, 14. Januar 2000
This is the best book I have researched on the subject matter of communist influence and power strugle within the Cuban Revolution. It also clearly depicts its evolution from a nationalist revolution to a dogmatic communist regime and executor of Soviet policy in the Americas.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Scary in its conclusions., 30. Juli 2000
A brilliant book, beautifully written and rigorously researched. It's also scary in its conclusions--and thoroughly plausible.
