The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History
The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History
Price: £3.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read, 25 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found this book both informative and enjoyable to read. I have learnt a lot from its content, especially the roles played by many individuals drafted from their otherwise ordinary lives. Ordinary turned them into extraordinary people. Also the bravery shown by one French lady who cared for nothing more than important art works remaining in their rightful places.

This is the first-ever time I have read anything by John Green, I don't think it will be the last. Really touching story about two young people facing an impossible struggle. Wonder whether the film will be as good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Remarkable, 21 Sep 2013
This is quite a story about how deceptive some families can be. Given the time this happened perhaps it's understandable. Great that they've found each other even at this time. Shows that there are coincidences in life that may never come to light
Good read even if sad at times.

This review is from: The Racketeer (Kindle Edition)
This was a little more interesting than some of the others that I've previously read both in content and style. I've only read the legal based books before. However this is an enjoyable read with an unexpected twist. Will recommend it to mum to get out of library. My copy's on kindle!

Really interesting book. Very difficult to put down and found it annoying when kindle had to be recharged! Does make you wonder whether certain events would have happened, such as Vietnam war.

This has really made me want to travel to the places mentioned. You just have to take what life throws at you. I admire her courage. Really enjoyed this and aim to look up the pictures on line when I get home albeit on a plane. Seems the easy way now!!!

I am in tears writing this as my great uncle was one of the first soldiers who entered belsen concentration camp, something we didn't know until his funeral. He only told his family when his granddaughter was doing her history degree. This brought it all to life, albeit with an unexpected twist. Jodi really knows how to tell a really good story!

5.0 out of 5 stars Different way of life, 6 May 2013
Very enjoyable book showing how it was to travel with style and not by cattle-class as it is today, unless you travel first class,makes you wish you were born 20 years earlier! Don't doubt for a minute how much hard work it was, but what a life!!! Really enjoyed reading it and a bit envious having been to some of the places mentioned. Need to win the lottery and/or reach out for the holiday brochures!!!
