This review is from: The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History (Kindle Edition)
As an historical account this book is very interesting and left me wanting to know more. The writing style is fine, but I did find the phrasing and sentence structure awkward in places. I had to re-read parts to determine the intended meaning.
The reality of cultural damage caused by war is a subject about which I was woefully ignorant. I am grateful to the author for enlightening me. He has successfully captured the essence of what transpired and the inspired men and women who appear to have been largely unrecognised. I will be buying the account written about Italy. My only complaint is that the kindle version is poorly illustrated. I continually used the internet to view the art and the locations described.
