Summary
In 1961, Kennedy was newly inaugurated when he attended the Vienna Summit, and Krushchev quickly dismissed him as a "boy in short pants" and deliberately intimidated him. Fearful of any mistake that would lead to nuclear war, Kennedy concluded that the Berlin Wall was "better than a war." The tables turned in 1962 when Krushchev sent missiles into Cuba to try to force Kennedy to withdraw U.S. forces from Berlin; Kennedy was triumphant in that conflict and Krushchev made no more threats ever Berlin. Yet the entire missile crisis, and the state of Berlin in general, might have been very different if Kennedy had followed another course of action all along
