"Heart of a Soldier" is the extraordinary story of war, love, comradeship, danger, and heroism, told by Pulitzer Prize winner Stewart. In this personal look into the life of Vietnam veteran Rick Rescorla, readers will learn about his bravery under fire on September 11.
From the Publisher:
Heart of a Soldier is the extraordinary story of war, love and comradeship, danger and heroism, told by a Pulitzer Prize winner who is one of our finest writers.

When Rick Rescorla got home from Vietnam, he tried to put combat and death behind him, but he never could entirely. From the day he joined the British Army to fight a colonial war in Rhodesia, where he met American Special Forces' officer Dan Hill who would become his best friend, to the day he fell in love with Susan, everything in his remarkable life was preparing him for an act of generosity that would transcend all that went before.

Heart of a Soldier is a story of bravery under fire, of loyalty to one's comrades, of the miracle of finding happiness late in life. Everything about Rick's life came together on September 11. In charge of security for Morgan Stanley, he successfully got all its 2,700 men and women out of the south tower of the World Trade Center. Then, thinking perhaps of soldiers he'd held as they died, as well as the woman he loved, he went back one last time to search for stragglers.

Annotation:
Rick Rescorla was a hero of September 11, 2001, when, as head of security for Morgan Stanley Dean Witter, he saw to the evacuation of over 2,700 of its employees. Rescorla, however, did not make it out that day. Journalist James B. Stewart's portrait of Rescorla includes Rescorla's experiences as a legendary soldier in Africa and Vietnam (recalled by his comrade Dan Hill) , and his late-in-life relationship with his wife, Susan.
