Great UK review in History of War


History of War magazine has given us a terrific review.

Trimble was a man defined not by his outstanding heroics in the war but by the humility he displayed afterwards . . .

The book . . . paints a fascinating picture of the difficult relations between the US and Soviets in the closing days of the war . . . It’s as if Europe hasn’t been saved at all, rather that it’s preparing for a new conflict altogether . . .

The individual rescue missions make for edge-of-your-seat reading too, particularly one story in which Trimble smuggles 400 French women out of the country in a daring rendezvous . . .

Overall, it’s captivating stuff, detailing one man’s courage in a seemingly impossible situation – a brilliantly told story of a true unsung hero.
