5.0 out of 5 stars Saving Italy: The Race to Rescue a Nation's Treasures from the Nazis, 21 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Saving Italy: The Race to Rescue a Nation's Treasures from the Nazis (Hardcover)
Having read Robert Edsel's earlier book Monuments Men which I thoroughly enjoyed I followed up with Saving Italy - It is very hard to believe that during World War II so many artefacts, monuments & paintings were stolen from so many private homes, museums etc. and placed into the hands of the German Nazis (and stashed away in caves). It is wonderful to think that an "army" of selected people were chosen to infiltrate countries in Europe (both towards the end of the war and afterwards) to find the masses of artefacts and return to their various owners and/or museums. Obviously large numbers of paintings etc. still remain lost and even in todays 20th century era paintings (in particular) are suddenly appearing after so many lost years. Very interesting reading and a lesson to learn from the aftermath of the second world war - Annabel
