In a time when war and terror have come to dominate the daily headlines, many people ask why the United Nations – the world peace organization – failed to save “succeeding generations from the scourge of war” as the UN Charter promised in 1945. Taking the example of the Cuban Missile Crisis this book documents how powerless the UN is when confronted with secret warfare and geostrategy.
