Miki has a wooden scooter with rubber wheels. Though the wheels are red and rather attractive, he is dreaming of a real bicycle. He is only eight years old and likes to play with his cut out paper soldiers, which his father generously supplies him from his bookstore. The soldiers are mainly Hungarian and German soldiers. There are complete military orchestras as well to be cut out. It is a lot of work for an eight-year-old. Then, finally the soldiers are starting to march on the carpet in the living room. Miki does not know yet that the real soldiers will very soon play an important role in his life. This innocence of not knowing how things really are is forgivable for a small child. But what happens if our Miki never really catches up with the brutal reality of his changing surroundings? Is this a desirable personality trait, or just plain stupidity? Whatever it is, this is the key to his survival of the years of Holocaust and Communist terror. He is not only a survivor, but he is a contented person always finding the interesting, the exciting parts of a given situation. The rest is in the book.

From Pulitzer Prize winner James B. Stewart comes the extraordinary story of American hero Rick Rescorla, Morgan Stanley security director and a veteran of Vietnam and the British colonial wars in Rhodesia, who lost his life on September 11. 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.
