The 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis: Canadian Involvement Reconsidered by Peter T. Haydon, 1993
The 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis: Canadian Involvement Reconsidered by Peter T. Haydon was published in 1993 by the Canadian Institute of Canadian Studies. This document looks at the way Canada responded to the 1962 Cuban missile crisis. In particular, it is about the failure of the Canadian political system to exercise effective control of the Canadian military in an international crisis. It also discusses how the Minister of National Defence, Douglas Harkness, and his military commanders had to take matters into their own hands to avert a national embarrassment. It contains a chronology of the events of the crisis as well as documents related to the episode. This is not a common book to find.
