Heart of a soldier

£3.99

Product description

When British born Rick Rescorla got home from Vietnam, he tried to put combat and death behind him, but he could never bury it entirely. From the day he joined the British Army to fight a colonial war in Rhodesia, where he met American Special Forces' 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, and the wonder 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 Centre. Then, he went back one last time to search for stragglers.
