What price would you pay to preserve a cultural legacy? Would it be worth endangering your life? Author Robert M. Edsel tells the true story of those who took this risk in The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History. This summary is an ideal guide to take you through the journeys of 18 men who joined the Army's little-known MFAA unit, which protected precious European art from destruction during World War II. The author discusses these untraditional soldiers; they were older family men who left their jobs as professors, curators, sculptors, and architects to preserve not only democracy, but also art and history for future generations.
The contributions of this group of cultural patriots would go unrecognized for 60 years. Yet, the successful mission of the Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives unit would have a lasting impact on the heritage of the Western world. Read about how this unit was created. Then, discover the challenges and tragedies these men faced in the final days of Hitler's scorched earth policy.

"Caroline Birch. Put her away." The message was clutched in the fist of a destitute former doll collector found dead at the bottom of a cliff with a valuable French doll’s parasol in her pocket. And the person seen fleeing the crime scene fits Caroline’s description. But Gretchen Birch knows her mother is innocent. The problem is, Caroline has disappeared – and she’s left an urgent warning that Gretchen is in danger, too.
