Very interesting app, well presented and simple navigation with rich detail when you want to go further into an event, alternatively take a simple overview of this fascinating 2 week period.
An absolutely superb and fascinating app covering the Cuban missile crisis of 1962. Exactly the kind of thing the iPad is perfect for, and extremely well implemented, with videos, diagrams and declassified documents.
