Publisher's Summary

Robert M. Edsel, number one New York Times best-selling author of The Monuments Men, brings this story to young listeners for the first time in a sweeping, dynamic adventure detailing history's greatest treasure hunt.

As the most destructive war in history ravaged Europe, many of the world's most cherished cultural objects were in harm's way. The Greatest Treasure Hunt in History recounts the astonishing true story of 11 men and one woman who risked their lives amidst the bloodshed of World War II to preserve churches, libraries, monuments, and works of art that for centuries defined the heritage of Western civilization. 

As the war raged, these American and British volunteers - museum curators, art scholars and educators, architects, archivists, and artists, known as the Monuments Men - found themselves in a desperate race against time to locate and save the many priceless treasures and works of art stolen by Adolf Hitler and the Nazis.

Nice Read. Learned so much.

Such good people in the world, a great story of their battle. Hard to keep track of the dates, luckily I had a hard copy to refer to.
