Descrizione prodotto

L'autore

Jan and Bob Ritter live on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay in Southern Maryland. Both are graduates of the University of Maryland and longtime residents of the Washington Metropolitan Area. Jan is retired from the teaching profession where she specialized in early childhood education and Reading Recovery. When not walking the boardwalk for exercise, she enjoys shopping, antiquing, reading, and working crossword puzzles. Bob is a retired federal criminal investigator (GS-1811) with a wealth of law enforcement and protective experience. A born collector, Bob loves history and the music of the 1940s-60s. He takes pleasure in watching the wildlife and ships that pass by the couple’s bay-front condominium. Bob is a member of the Association of Former Agents U.S. Secret Service (AFAUSSS), the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association (FLEOA), and the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP). Jan and Bob relish spending time with family and friends, especially the couple’s five granddaughters. With over 40 years of marriage, Jan and Bob deeply love one another and cherish each day together. Breaking Tecumseh’s Curse is the story of their early years together.

Compelling Secret Service History with Real Life Intertwined 7 maggio 2013
Di HighCholesterolGirl - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
As the daughter of a Secret Service agent, I remember the exact day that I realized what my Father's job really was - to die for someone else! I bought this book hoping to learn more about the Secret Service and specifically the history of Tecumseh's Curse. I was not disappointed. Exceptionally researched history was intertwined with the side of the story that many American citizens don't think about - the human side of these Secret Service Agents who pledge to protect the President at all costs. A great read, well written and easy to follow for a history afficionado as well as a lay person. I recommend this book for anyone interested in Secret Service History, the History of Tecumseh's Curse, as well as personal accounts of the times.

WELL DONE 29 aprile 2013
Di CAPT'N P - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I FOUND THIS TO BE EXTREMELY WELL WRITTEN AND VERY INFORMATIVE. I HAVE HAD MORE THAN ONE CONTACT WITH AGENTS, BOTH PROFESSIONALY AND PERSONALLY. I NEVER KNEW MUCH ABOUT THEIR RESPONSIBILITIES, OTHER THAN THE POTUS PROTECTION. I NOW KNOW THROUGH THIS BOOK THERE ARE SO MANY FACETS OF THE SECRET SERVICE THAT ARE VERY MUCH BEHIND WHAT THE PUBLIC SEE'S. THE INFORMATION WAS VERY WELL PRESENTED BY THE AUTHOR IN A MANNER THAT DISPLAYED HER EMOTIONS AND THE EFFECT THE POSITION HAD ON THE FAMILY'S QUALITY OF LIFE.IT ALSO SHOWED THE CHARACTER AND INTEGRITY OF THE SPECIAL AGENT'S.
I WAS IMPRESSED WITH THE BOOK TO THE POINT I FOUND IT DIFFICULT TO PUT DOWN. I ALWAYS WANTED TO KNOW WHERE THE NEXT CHAPTER TOOK ME. IN CONCLUSION, EXCELLENT READING.

Di Richard Schwartz - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
The book is somewhat long, but once I got into it that faded into the background. It is a narrative of many interesting anecdotes that chronicle life inside the Secret Service. Breaking Tecumseh's Curse focuses on a short period during the 1970s and early 1980s, but working for the Secret Service probably hasn't changed a lot since then. Several themes are apparent: Working top level security has its adventures and rewards but demands a huge amount of time and commitment, as well as a tolerance for bureaucratic office politics. A Secret Service agent must discard the notion of a predictable 9-5 weekday work schedule. The job can dominate one's life and heavily affect one's family. This book doesn't sugarcoat or glamorize executive security.

Excellent Secret Service book for the enthusiast (like me)! 16 aprile 2013
Di Vince Palamara - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
As someone very much interested in the history of the Secret Service (and the author of a forthcoming book on the same subject), I was most interested to see just what this book had to offer. Well, let me tell you: I was not disappointed. Well written and structured, this volume does a nice job conveying the author's journey in the agency, among other things. I was glad to see former Reagan SAIC Robert DeProspero mentioned (as he is in Del Wilber's and Joe Petro's books), as he is a favorite of mine, but I digress. Buy this one asap!
F.L.E.O.A. Strongly Endorses Breaking Tecumseh's Curse 17 agosto 2014
Di Mercedes - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
Author Jan Ritter does a great job portraying the unrelenting honor exuded by her husband Bob, during his tenure as a Senior Special Agent with the Secret Service. I am impressed with Special Agent Ritter's willingness to combat the suffocating effects of bureaucracy, while dedicating his life to protecting the president. This should be required reading for all new agents - Jon Adler, FLEOA President
