Beyond the Call

By Lee Trimble and Jeremy Dronfield

1945. The War is almost over. As the Red Army advance across Poland, thousands of freed Allied Prisoners of War were abandoned to wander the Eastern Front.

They had no shelter, food, or ammunition; they were an army of dead men walking. To the Soviets, POWs were cowards, or worse, enemy spies. 

The Allies wanted their men back. The Americans, offering help, were refused. The men could only be rescued undercover. The OSS, the forerunner to the CIA, planned a secret mission to rescue the thousands of soldiers. 

They chose veteran Eighth Air Force bomber pilot Captain Robert Trimble. With little covert training, Trimble survived by wit, courage, and determination. He faced up against the Soviet secret police alone, in a desperate bid to save the soldiers left behind. 

Beyond the Call is an inspiring true story of bravery and heroism.
