About the Author

Lee Trimble was born in 1950, the son of Captain Robert M. Trimble. He was educated in science and technology at Pennsylvania State University and received an MS at Stevens Institute of Technology in New Jersey. He worked in research and development on lasers, electronics, and semiconductors, and has been a scientific writer and reviewer for various scholarly and professional journals. He has lately retired from the tech world, and works rehabilitating problem dogs, including work in conjunction with SPCA International and the U.S. military on "Operation Baghdad Pups." Jeremy Dronfield is a multi-faceted writer, biographer, and novelist, with a special interest in WWII aviation. He began in archaeology, gaining his PhD at Cambridge University. In 1997 his debut novel, The Locust Farm, was a bestseller in the United Kingdom. He is also the author of Resurrecting Salvador, Burning Blue (a novel about the experiences of a U.S. pilot in WWII), and the critically acclaimed The Alchemist's Apprentice. He is also coauthor of several historical biographies, including one about the life of the Russian spy Moura Budberg.

Reviews

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 Sisters, Secrets, and Sacrifice "A little-known set of moving adventures, well-researched and presented."--Kirkus Reviews "Trimble's son has provided a riveting, tense, and ultimately satisfying account of his father's heroic effort."--Booklist "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 "A brilliantly told story of a true unsung hero."--History of War Magazine
