The Incredible Story of a WW2 Pilot's Covert Mission to Rescue POWs on the Eastern Front.

One ordinary man; one extraordinary mission; a thousand lives at stake…

This documentary tells the true story behind the bestselling book "Beyond the Call" by Lee Trimble. In late 1944, Lee's father, Captain Robert Trimble, a veteran B-17 bomber pilot, was tasked with a unique secret mission – to enter Soviet-occupied Poland in a bid to rescue the thousands of Allied ex-POWs who had been abandoned there by the Red Army.

ADAM MAKOS, BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF "A HIGHER CALL" says: "Snappy and cinematic, "Beyond the Call" is a gift, 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."

BACKGROUND:
Near the end of World War II, thousands of Allied ex-POWs liberated by the Red Army were abandoned to wander the war-torn Eastern Front. With no food, shelter, or supplies, they were an army of dying men.

The Red Army had pushed the Nazis out of Russia. As they advanced across Poland, the prison camps of the Third Reich were discovered and liberated. In defiance of humanity, the freed Allied prisoners were discarded without aid. The Soviets viewed POWs as cowards, and regarded all refugees as potential spies or partisans; they either abandoned them to their fate or rounded them up into detainment camps. They refused all offers by the Allies to help. The only solution was to go undercover.
