OGDEN -- "What if" is a question that can't really be answered, but it can lead to some exciting discussions.
Eric Swedin presents "A What-If History of the Cuban Missile Crisis" at 7 p.m. Monday at Weber State University's Lindquist Alumni Center.
Swedin, a WSU history department faculty member, will examine several variables that could have changed the outcome of the Cuban Missile Crisis. Among the "what ifs" he tackles in his presentation are: "What if the U-2 flight that found the Soviet missile sites on Cuba, thus starting the Crisis, had been delayed by just seven days?" and "If nuclear war had come, how would the U.S. and Soviet Union have fared in 1962?"
Admission to the lecture is free. The alumni center is on the north end of the WSU campus at 1235 E. 4100 South.
