The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves, and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History by Robert M. Edsel. A Reader's Corner Highly Recommended Read. This is the classic true story of the Allied effort to save the world's art treasures and architecture from destruction during WWII. The small but gallant force of men and women who gave their all to save world culture for posterity is a story few know, but one that everyone should take the time to learn.
