Aims and Scope
In 1958, Soviet Premier Khrushchev triggered the Berlin crisis. The three Western Allies and West Germany sought to contain the crisis without having to play the nuclear card. Responsibility for crisis management fell to LIVE OAK. Based on the documentary record released only a few years go by the Four Powers, Harald van Neus analyzes the history of this secret organization, which remained active until 1990.
