“Monuments Men” and "Saving Italy” How did Europe's great works of art survive the destruction of World War II?
How did Europe's great works of art survive the destruction of World War II? Robert Edsel, author of “Monuments Men” and "Saving Italy” gives you the details and incredible story.
I just download “Saving Italy” in audio format and can't wait to get into it. But right now, I'm listening to the precursor to this book which is “Monuments Men” which is due to come out in a movie with George Cloonie and Matt Damon this Sept. When the author was gathering info for his book, it became too massive and he couldn't whiddle it down... so he published the very interesting details of saving Europe's art during WWII in these two separate books.
The books and audio are available on Amazon. Click on the book’s name for the link.
