There are a few very minor complaints. The book is a little American-centric. There is very little about the British Army's discovery of Nazi repositories. At times the book can read like a list with too much detail. The index is a little hit and miss, particularly on tangible objects such as the Trojan Gold.
Nonetheless, it is an outstanding book and the starting point for all those interested in the subject.
A final word. The film The Monuments Men is a pale shadow of the book. Seeing the film is no substitute whatever for the book.
