History 12-1: Khrushchev

I left you with some thinking around the Berlin Crisis that developed in 1961-62. How should the leaders proceed. Is Berlin worth the trouble? If so, why? If not, why not? This really is worth thinking about as you grapple with the concept of a cold war and how it affected policy and decisions.
