Description

“The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves, and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History”

Art preservation advocate and author of New York Times best-selling book The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves, and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History

What began as a question for Robert Edsel evolved into an impassioned journey to unravel the secrets and heroics of the unsung heroes who saved the world’s greatest art and cultural treasures. A former nationally ranked tennis player and oilman, he is now considered one of the foremost art preservation advocates.

Edsel has dedicated the last decade to the meticulous research of these cultural heroes, which culminated in his New York Times best-selling book The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves, and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History.
