According to the sensational new book 'Jacqueline Kennedy: Historic Conversations on Life with John F. Kennedy' on the eve of the Cuban missile crisis President John F. Kennedy telephoned his wife at their weekend house in Virginia to inform her that the world was on the brink of nuclear war.
'From then on, it seemed there was no waking or sleeping,' Mrs. Kennedy reveals in a taped interview scheduled to be released on Wednesday, 47 years after they were originally were conducted.
But despite her fears about the aggressive move by the Soviets, she was adamant that would stay with her husband.
'If anything happens, we’re all going to stay right here with you,' she recalls telling him in October 1962. 'I just want to be with you, and I want to die with you, and the children do, too — than live without you.'
The seven-part interview conducted in early 1964 in the aftermath of Kennedy’s assassination is being published as a book and an audio recording.
