Secrets Of The Secret Service is an exhaustive investigation into America’s most mysterious law enforcement agency, detailing the weapons and tactics they use to protect the President of the United States.

Many of the service’s current methods and technology have been introduced as a result of tragedy. The assassination of President John F Kennedy laid bare a catalogue of errors which left him vulnerable.

One of the major innovations to arise from that fateful day in Dallas was the redesign of the presidential limousine — which is more like a tank than a car, sporting bullet-proof windows, tear gas cannons and significant armour plating.

One of the things to come from it was a change in the weaponry used. Agents now carry FNP90 submachine guns, with body armour piercing rounds. These allow an assailant to be taken out with pinpoint accuracy, without danger to the inevitable large crowds surrounding the President.

Including interviews with ex-agents and a former White House press secretary, Secrets Of The Secret Service examines everything from the service’s training techniques to the protocols used when the President is aboard Air Force 1.

Teddy Roosevelt charging up the San Juan Heights, the Rough Riders and the sinking of the battleship, the U.S.S. Maine—these are what people commonly know about the United States’ war with Spain in 1898. What they may not remember is that this was the war that steered the United States to center stage as a world power. Victorious over Spain in Cuba and the Philippines, the United States, a nation founded in opposition to imperialism, grappled with its new role as an imperial power. More recent events in Vietnam, Somalia, and Yugoslavia bear striking parallels to those of 1898. Even in its own time, the war with Spain was understood as a turning point in American history.
