Abstract:

At the same time that Adolf Hitler was attempting to take over the western world, his armies were methodically seeking and hoarding the finest art treasures in Europe. The Führer had begun cataloging the art he planned to collect as well as the art he would destroy: the "degenerate" works he despised. In a race against time, a group of American and British museum directors, curators, art historians, and others, called the Monuments Men, risked their lives scouring Europe to prevent the destruction of thousands of years of culture. Focusing on the period between D-Day and V-E Day, this acclaimed book follows six Monuments Men on their impossible mission to save the world's great art from the Nazis.
