Omschrijving

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.

Praise for Beyond the Call:

'An untold story from those last days of WWII in Europe when the unthinkable became real-when our ally had turned against us, when our POWs were left to die, and when a veteran pilot would receive a harrowing final mission-to fly against the might of the Soviet Union' - Adam Makos, New York Times bestselling author of A Higher Call

'Vivid and engaging, Beyond the Call is partly a story of one officer's guile and bravery in the face of forces much larger and more powerful than himself. But it is also a moving and appalling tale of the full horror of World War II's last year on the Eastern Front' - Randall Hansen, author of Fire and Fury and Disobeying Hitler

'Beyond the Call is the brilliantly told, fast-paced true story of a remarkable young man. Nerve-wracking, informative, yet profoundly moving, Beyond the Call is a truly inspiring book' - Susan Ottaway, author of Hitler's Traitors

'This account delivers a different story from the norm...a remarkable (and virtually unknown) story of courage in the face of incredible danger' - Library Journal
