9780099567943: The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History

Now a major film starring GEORGE CLOONEY, MATT DAMON, CATE BLANCHETT, BILL MURRAY, JOHN GOODMAN, HUGH BONNEVILLE, BOB BALABAN, JEAN DUJARDIN and DIMITRI LEONIDAS.

What if I told you that there was an epic story about World War II that has not been told, involving the most unlikely group of heroes?

What if I told you there was a group of men on the front lines who didn’t carry machine guns or drive tanks; a new kind of soldier, one charged with saving, not destroying.

From caves to castles in a thrilling race against time, these men risked their lives daily to save hundreds of thousands of the world’s greatest works of art.

THEY were the Monuments Men, and THIS is their extraordinary true story.

‘Remarkable’ Washington Post

‘Engaging, inspiring’ Publishers Weekly

Review:

"After World War Two I served as a British member of the 'Monuments' section in Germany. Our task, I believe, was truly important - we were restoring to Europe evidence of its own civilization, which the War seemed virtually to have destroyed - and I was lucky to have had a chance to participate. It is excellent that Mr Edsel has now recorded this remarkable episode, and I am grateful to him for devoting so much energy to telling the stories of those involved." (Anne Olivier Bell)

"Highly Readable ... a remarkable history" ( Washington Post)

"Engaging and inspiring" ( Publishers Weekly)

What if I told you that there was an epic story about World War II that has not been told, involving the most unlikely group of heroes?

And now a New York Times Bestseller.
