How did the Cuban Missile Crisis start?

Answer

The Cuban Missile Crisis occurred when the Soviet Union secretly put nuclear missiles on the island of Cuba. The missiles were discovered by routine spy-plane surveillance that the Soviet Union was building surface-to-air missile (SAM) launch sites. This nearly started a nuclear war between the U.S. and the Soviet Union.

The Cuban Missile Crisis started as a result of the Cold War, a time when the world came closest to annihilating itself. It was caused by superpower tension between Russia and America. On 14 October 1962 an American spy-plane took pictures of a nuclear missile base being built on Cuba.
