So I finished Robert Edsel's The Monument Men: Allied Heroes Nazi Thieves, and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History. For those that saw and enjoyed the movie, this is so much better.

The book goes into small biographical histories of the original Monument Men, their various educational and career backgrounds, and their goal to save the stolen treasures of World War II and treasured architectural buildings in all of Europe including whenever possible those of the Axis Powers.

The book goes into the salt mine in Germany but also highlights other hiding spots around France. Belgium and Germany that were stolen by the Nazi’s. It also attempts to save from Hitler's Nero Decree to destroy any artwork rather that have it retrieved by the Allied Forces.

A solid 4.5 to 5 star book for me. I loved it add recommend it to all World War II students to see another side of the war. ( )

Wow! Definitely a side of war you don’t think about. Extremely interesting, if not a bit plodding at parts. Starts out slow, but stick with it and you’ll be rewarded. As if all the other Nazi atrocities weren’t enough (and they were and then some) you can add the ones here to that list. These guys definitely should be more famous, unsung heroes without a doubt.

During World War II a handful of art experts in the Allied military forces took on the challenge of trying to protect the cultural treasures of Europe. As the war raged, these people did their best to save historical buildings and art from the general destruction going on around them.

They also tried to track down and recover what the Nazis had stolen. Hitler, Goering and his cohorts took advantage of the war to pull the biggest art heist in history, and this included looting the culture of countries they invaded as well as stealing the private collections of people they killed or imprisoned.

The hunters' exploits make a fascinating read. Edsel carefully and colorfully backgrounds "The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves, and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History" with vivid accounts of the war's progress. But statements that recall films "based on a true story" may put some readers off. An author's note says he created dialogue for continuity but not on substance, and always with documentation.

Whatever these paintings may have been to men who looked at them a generation back - today they are not only works of art. Today they are the symbols of the human spirit, and of the world the freedom of the human spirit made. . . . To accept this work today is to assert the purpose of the people of America that the freedom of the human spirit and human mind which has produced the world's great art and all its science - shall not be utterly destroyed.- President Franklin D. Roosevelt, dedication ceremony of the National Gallery of Art, March 17, 1941
It used to be called plundering. But today things have become more humane. In spite of that, I intend to plunder, and to do it thoroughly. - Reichsmarschall Hermann Goring, speaking to a conference of Reich Commissioners for the Occupied Territories and the Military Commanders, Berlin, August 6, 1942
