"For four years, from the election of John Fitzgerald Kennedy in November 1960 until after the election of Lyndon Johnson in 1964, Clint Hill was the Secret Service agent assigned to guard the glamorous and intensely private Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy.

The Kennedy detail : JFK's secret service agents break their silence by Gerald Blaine( Book )
2 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Secret Service are an elite team of men who share a single mission: to protect the president of the United States. On November 22, 1963, these men failed, and a country would never be the same. Now, for the first time, a member of JFK's Secret Service detail reveals the inside story of the assassination, the weeks and days that led to it and its heartrending aftermath. This book is a portrait of dedication, courage, and loss. Drawing on the memories of his fellow agents, the author captures the energetic, crowd-loving young president, who banned agents from his car and often plunged into raucous crowds with little warning. He describes the careful planning that went into JFK's Texas swing, the worries and concerns that agents, working long hours with little food or rest, had during the trip. And he describes the intensely private first lady making her first ever political appearance with her husband, just months after losing a newborn baby. Here are vivid scenes that could come only from inside the Kennedy detail: JFK's last words to his tearful son when he left Washington for the last time; how a sudden change of weather led to the choice of the open air convertible limousine that day; Mrs. Kennedy standing blood soaked outside a Dallas hospital room; the sudden interruption of six-year-old Caroline's long anticipated sleepover with a friend at home; the exhausted team of agents immediately reacting to the president's death with a shift to LBJ and other key governmental figures; the agents' dismay at Jackie's decision to walk openly from the White House to St. Matthew's Cathedral at the state funeral. Most of all, this is a look into the lives of men who devoted their entire beings to protecting the presidential family: the stress of the secrecy they kept, the emotional bonds that developed, the terrible impact on agents' psyches and families, and their astonishment at the country's obsession with far fetched conspiracy theories and finger pointing. This book is a portrait of camaraderie and heartbreak, a true story of heroism in its most complex and human form; the true story of the assassination of JFK, told by Secret Service agents who were there and who have lived with the guilt and grief from that day

"The New York Times bestselling authors of Mrs. Kennedy and Me share the stories behind the five infamous, tragic days surrounding JFK's assassination--alongside revealing and iconic photographs--published in remembrance of the beloved president on the fiftieth anniversary of his death.Clint Hill will forever be remembered as the lone secret service agent who jumped onto the car after President Kennedy was shot, clinging to its sides as it sped toward the hospital. Even now, decades after JFK's presidency, the public continues to be fascinated with the Kennedys--America's royal family. To mark the fiftieth anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's assassination, Hill recounts his indelible memories of those five days leading up to, and after, that tragic day in November 1963. Hill, as Jackie's guard, experienced those days firsthand. Alongside the famous photos everyone is familiar with, Hill provides a moment-to-moment narration evoking the feelings and emotions behind the images--clearing up the persistent conspiracy misconceptions along the way. He also shows us the little-seen photos of Jackie both before and after the terrible event, describing the poignant moments they shared, during that pivotal moment in history. Told movingly by a man who still wishes he could undo it all, Five Days in November is a rare and deeply personal look at the assassination that affected the entire world and changed the United States forever"--

"He's still breathing," the man said as he rushed past. Mrs. Kennedy stood up. "Do you mean he may live'" she asked. No one answered. Kellerman handed the phone back to Hill and rushed back into the trauma room. "Clint, what happened'" Jerry Behn asked earnestly. "Shots fired during the motorcade," Clint said as he kept an eye on Mrs. Kennedy across the hall. "It all happened so fast. We were five minutes away from the Trade Mart. . . . The situation is critical. Jerry, prepare for the worst. . . ." The operator cut into the line, "Attorney General Robert Kennedy wants to talk to Agent Hill." "What's going on down there'!" Bobby Kennedy demanded. "Shots fired during the motorcade," Clint repeated. "The president is very seriously injured. They're working on him now. Governor Connally was hit too." "Well, what do you mean, seriously injured' How serious'" Clint swallowed hard. It was all he could do to keep it together. "It's as bad as it can get."
