NY Times bestselling author, Michael J. Tougias (back by popular demand) recounts the little-known story of U-2 pilots who flew from Orlando to Cuba to secure photographic proof the Soviets were installing nuclear missiles, sparking an international crisis that brought the U.S. and Soviet Union to the brink of war. One pilot was fatally shot down, an incident covered up and later revealed by U-2 pilot Jerry McIlmoyle of Venice, Florida.
