David Wood and Michael McCree, find themselves among the thousands of reservist called to active duty during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Since any real threat of danger was laid to rest when the Russians agreed to remove their missiles from Cuba, both men view the military call-up as a brief inconvenience to their otherwise normal lives. But fate intervenes and instead of a brief tour of duty, both men find themselves stranded on an island occupied by Cuban exiles.

Based on actual events that took place before and after the Cuban Missile Crisis, Weekend Warriors is filled with action and not for the faint hearted.
