I can't wait to read this!

Rescuing da Vinci

The link goes to an article about a new book about the "Monuments Men" (which included some women, of course)... these are the people who helped recover art from Nazi strongholds after World War II. This book will make an excellent companion to the other two great books on the topic of Nazi-era art thefts, The Rape of Europa and The Lost Museum

For information on how Nazi-era art thefts affect museums today, including the Lauren Rogers Museum, click here

I hope you have had a chance to review the book Rescuing Da Vinci. The images used are so powerful and the the text describes heroics that are commonly only seen in a big box office war movie. I would highly recommend this book to any art lover.
