Jeffrey Sachs, director of the Earth Institute at Columbia University, recounts President John F. Kennedy?s pursuit of a reduction of nuclear arms and a greater relationship with the Soviet Union following the Cuban Missile Crisis. The author focuses on Kennedy?s foreign policy initiatives from October 1962 to September 1963 and reports that the President with the assistance of Soviet President Nikita Khruschev worked to move away from nuclear conflict. Mr. Sachs reports that Kennedy's actions were met with criticism from members of his administration, the government, and the American public.

The Big Picture [electronic resource]: Operation Mercy

This episode of the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series tells the story of the Hungarian Revolution as seen through the eyes of its freedom fighters. Beginning at the end of October 1956, the revolution against the government's Soviet-imposed policies caused thousands of Hungarians to find refuge in neighboring Austria and Yugoslavia. In response, the U.S. Army launched "Operation Mercy," transporting Hungarian refugees to Camp Kilmer, New Jersey, as part of the U.S.'s humanitarian efforts. This video from the National Archives and Records Administration shows the U.S. Army's "human side" as it coordinates efforts with the American Red Cross, American Embassy in Munich, and other agencies.
