US Deploys Pershing Missiles
On November 23, the US deployed the first Persing Intermediate-range ballistic missile in West Germany. The Pershing was developed and deployed in response to the Soviet intermediate missile previously targeted at Western Europe. The Soviets opposed US deployments and peace groups throughout Europe demonstrated against them. On the day the deployments took place the Soviets walked out of the disarmament talks taking place in Geneva in protest.
