While his part in the missile crisis that threatened to snowball into a nuclear war has been thoroughly studied, his critical role in the Sino-Indian War has been largely ignored. Bruce Riedel fills that gap with JFK's Forgotten Crisis: Tibet, the CIA, and the Sino-Indian War. Riedel's telling of the president's firm response to China's invasion of India and his deft diplomacy in keeping Pakistan neutral provides a unique study of Kennedy's leadership. Embedded within that story is an array of historical details of special interest to India, remarkable among which are Jacqueline Kennedy's role in bolstering diplomatic relations with Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru and Pakistan President Ayub Khan, and the backstory to the China-India rivalry - what is today the longest disputed border in the world.
