The countdown begins!

Early February 2015 – less than a month away – will see the publication of an exciting new book. Beyond the Call tells the amazing true story of a top secret mission of mercy on the Eastern Front in World War II.

The book has been written in collaboration between Lee Trimble – whose father, bomber pilot Captain Robert M. Trimble, is the subject of the story – and British biographer, academic and novelist Jeremy Dronfield. It is published in the US by Penguin's Berkley Caliber imprint, and in the UK by Icon Books.
