While Kissinger's observation that Cubans did not play soccer in 1970 was incorrect, the inference that the Soviets were building some kind of naval facility at Cienfuegos, at least opening the possibility of another Cuban crisis, was on the mark. Yet this incident never grew into a full-blown episode in U.S. foreign policy, and no U.S. force was used. There are no great books about this incident, and there have previously been only a few scholarly articles about it.
