great read
focused on the stories of about 8 men- a manageable #.Balanced, for the most part-showing that some Nazi's took steps to protect the art-while others were everybody's idea of a Nazi.
Fills a void, gaining some recognition for these brave people

This has a lot of information on the Monument Men. Who they were and the challenges they faces. Than what happened to them after the war.
