Summary

NewYork City has long been a breeding ground for spies, saboteurs, terrorists, and other threats to the nation's greatest city. Battleground New York Cityexamines the history of domestic security operations and the people and agencies involved in safeguarding 'úthe city that never sleeps.'Ě Starting with the bloody draft riots during the Civil War,Thomas Reppetto guides the reader through New York City's history, emphasizing the battles against twentieth-century German and Russian spies and Islamic radicals.This book illustrates how, over the course of two world wars, numerous political and social upheavals, and shocking terrorist attacks, the United States developed a complex web of organizations responsible for identifying and neutralizing security risks.The city has been the training and proving ground for law enforcement agencies in developing the organizations, strategies, and tactics now used to protect citizens nationwide.The histories and operations of the U.S. Secret Service, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the New York Police Department, and others provide insight into recent events and what the United States needs to do to protect all of its citizens for the future. Battleground New York Cityis the exciting story of the men and women who have dedicated their lives to protecting a city under threat.
