Pressestimmen

As a principle figure in resolving the crisis Robert Kennedy brings to it extraordinary authority, with his own insights, perspectives and very important revelations of the decision-making process at the highest level, on the brink of nuclear holocaust.--David Schoenbrun

Kurzbeschreibung

"A minor classic in its laconic, spare, compelling evocation by a participant of the shifting moods and maneuvers of the most dangerous moment in human history."—Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr.


During the thirteen days in October 1962 when the United States confronted the Soviet Union over its installation of missiles in Cuba, few people shared the behind-the-scenes story as it is told here by the late Senator Robert F. Kennedy. In this unique account, he describes each of the participants during the sometimes hour-to-hour negotiations, with particular attention to the actions and views of his brother, President John F. Kennedy. In a new foreword, the distinguished historian and Kennedy adviser Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., discusses the book's enduring importance and the significance of new information about the crisis that has come to light, especially from the Soviet Union.

Als John F. Kennedy im Januar 1961 sein Präsidentenamt antrat, da folgte ihm sein jüngerer Bruder Robert "Bobby" F. Kennedy ins Weiße Hause. Er wurde sein Justizminister. Daneben agierte RFK als wichtgster Berater seines Bruders. Insbesondere während der Kubakrise sollte sich die Zusammenarbeit bewähren.
Robert Kennedys Erinnerungen zur Kubakrise sind längst zum Klassiker der amerikanischen Geschichtsforschung anvanciert und wurden in mehreren Auflagen veröffentlicht. (Diese Ausgabe wird durch ein neues, höchst interessantes Vorwort von Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. eingeleitet. Zur damaligen Zeit war er einer der einflußreichsten Berater John F. Kennedys). RFK beginnt seine Schilderungen mit der Entdeckung der sowjetischen Atomraketen auf Kuba und berichtet dann von den endlosen Beratungen zwischen dem Präsidenten und seinen engsten Beratern. Da Robert Kennedy bei jeder wichtigen Sitzung anwesend war, erhält man so einen guten Eindruck in die amerikanische Entscheidungsfindung während der Krise.
Natürlich dürfen die geheimen Treffen zwischen RFK und dem sowjetischen Botschafter Dobrynin nicht fehlen. Sie bildeten die Grundlage für die Lösung der Kubakrise.
Ein Nachwort der beiden anerkannten Historiker Graham T. Allison und Richard E. Neustadt sowie ein Anhang mit mehreren Dokumenten zur Kubakrise rundet dieses hervorragende kleine Büchlein ab.

This is a great account of perhaps the most important set of decisions of the 20th century by a man who deserves much of the credit.
In addition to the obvious suspense and historical value, this account also revealed a number of facinating things: The senseless pressure from the military to bomb; a surprising emotional offer by Kruschev to back out of Cuba; evidence of confused messages from the Soviets who were confused themselves; Kennedy's unpopular but wise decisions to buy time for Kruschev to avoid a direct confrontation; RFK's staunch opposition to a surprise attack, because "it is against everything that the United States stands for."
This event took place long before I was born, yet I look at these events with some envy. We seem today to lack this kind of moral and measured decisionmaking in international affairs.
I've written enough. This book is short, cheap, and powerful -- Get it.
"The great tragedy was that, if we erred, we erred not only for ourselves, our futures, our hopes, and our country, but for the lives, futures, hopes, and countries of those who had never been given an opportunity to play a role, to vote aye or nay, to make themselves felt."

Von Ein Kunde am 16. November 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
It's unfortunate that RFK could not tell the truth about the Cuban missile crisis- that it was JFK's weakness in the Bay of Pigs, in Vienna, and the Berlin Wall which caused the Russians to test him. It's also unfortunate that RFK did not disclose the truth about the secret deals he and JFK made in exchange for the removal of the missiles- our promise not to invade Cuba, and our removal of the Jupiter missiles in Turkey. This was not a proud moment for the U.S., and it's taken recent historians to show the facts of what really happened. RFK's book is just another example of Kennedy myth-making.

HASH(0xa35049fc) von 5 Sternen A powerful memoir of nuclear crisis 13. Januar 2001
Von Robert Oliver - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Robert Kennedy wrote "Thirteen Days" a short time before his death in 1968. He never had the chance to rewrite and add additional material to his book; but as written it is a riveting account of the Cuban missile crisis in 1962. In the Autumn of 1962 the Soviet Union was placing nuclear missiles in Cuba. President Kennedy had to respond to that imminent threat, and the question was what course to take about the dangerous situation in Cuba. There were many that favored an immediate overwhelming military response to destroy the missiles; but Robert Kennedy favored surrounding the island with a naval blockade instead. He believed that a military attack on Cuba could lead to nuclear war, and that it should only be undertaken if there was no other choice. President Kennedy and his advisors spent many agonizing hours trying to consider every possible miscalculation or false step that could result in catastrophe. They sought to learn from the history of the past, and tried to follow a path of understanding in dealing with the Soviet Union and Cuba. The decisions that were made about Cuba would affect the lives of everyone on earth, and the lives of future generations as yet unborn. In this book the momentous events of the crisis in 1962 are seen through the eyes of Robert Kennedy. He opens the door to that time as only one who was there could, and gives many valuable insights into the mind of his brother the President. He helps us to understand what really happened in October 1962; and why. This is a very fine book, containing lessons of history that should always be remembered during times of great crisis.

HASH(0xa3543e58) von 5 Sternen A Historical Lesson about Human Nature and our own Mortality 14. März 2001
Von Anthony McClain - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
"Thirteen Days", a memoir by Robert Kennedy has become one of the most insightful and behind-the-scenes accounts of one of the most studied military confrontations in history. It was a time in which the world looked nuclear annihilation directly in the eyes over the course of 13 dramatic days in October of 1962.
RFK, an intricate player throughout the process, lays out in chilling recollection the Cuban Missile Crisis and how close we actually came to that fateful day when the world's superpowers would square off with nuclear weapons. RFK's first-hand account articulately provides a perspective on what was going on in the minds of the players involved. It allows the reader to understand the enormous weight their decisions carried, as well as all of the pressures that affected each of them.
While a generation remembers a stoic President Kennedy giving his on-air address condemning the soviet supply of offensive weapons into Cuba, "13 Days" brings into account all of the human factors that affected these men as they sought to do what they felt was right.
This was a time in our nation's history when leadership was most needed. With the encouragement of the President, these individuals sought to learn from the mistakes of the past while also sympathizing with the Soviets who were also thrust into this position. The Soviets would not let a military attack go unwarranted, but at the same time had families of their own and ultimately wanted the same outcome from this standoff; a peaceful conclusion.
The decisions that were made by the ExComm would impact the history of the world and all of its inhabitants. It was a trying time that tested the souls of the leaders of the world and proved to be a turning point in world events. As JFK security advisor McGeorge Bundy aptly put it, "Having come so close to the edge, we must make it our business not to pass this way again." President Kennedy did his best to put it all in perspective; "For in the final analysis, our most basic link is that we all inhabit this small planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children's future. And we are all mortal."
"13 Days" lays out the sequence of events that brought us all to this realization. It is a historical account that also touches upon the fragility of human nature and teaches us all a valuable lesson about our own mortality.

HASH(0xa352296c) von 5 Sternen It is only because of great and humble men we are here today 7. Januar 2003
Von Courtney - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
While I was not yet born when RFK and JFK were alive, I would have to say they are two of the greatest men in American history. Robert Kennedy brings his readers closer to a situtation that is almost beyond the scope of the human mind. His account of the Cuban Missile Crisis makes us realize how close we have come to the end and absolutely shows us that it is only because of great men we are here. This book reminds us how close we came to the end and the critical role Jack and Bobby played in bringing us back. I only hope that current and future leaders of the world read this account and understand what they understood...we are all mortal and we all love our children. Those are the things that will save us, Jack and Bobby knew that and it is obvious in this extrodrinary book.

HASH(0xa354487c) von 5 Sternen Inside The Cuban Missle Crisis 21. März 2001
Von P Magnum - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The Cuban Missile Crisis is the defining moment of John Kennedy's presidency. Locked in a high stakes game of chicken, the world's two most powerful nations, US & USSR, faced off over the Soviet Union's deployment of nuclear warheads in Cuba. Robert Kennedy was the Attorney General at the time and this book (written shortly before his death) is his personal account of the Thirteen Days that the world waited in fear of a possible nuclear holocaust. We see the innerworkings of the committee that the President formed to advise him on how to proceed. Mr. Kennedy's writing vividly expresses the enormous pressure these few gentlemen were under. They literally had the weight of the world on their shoulders and one wrong move could spell total annihilation. Being the President's brother, he also is able to give us a view of the President that a normal cabinet member wouldn't be able to give. The book also contains correspondence between JFK & Kruschev, previously classified photos and transcriptions of speeches that JFK gave at the time. For someone who remembers the Crises, this book will bring back strong memories and for those of us who weren't alive, the book details an important time in our country's history.
