ABSTRACT
The article comments on American reaction to the Soviet combat brigade, a projection of the Soviet Union's military prowess into the Caribbean region. It also perceived as a political symbol indicative of the insertion of Soviet power into the American sphere of influence in the Caribbean and a way for Brezhnev to recoup the missile-crisis humiliation suffered by Khrushchev.
