    I couldn┬┐t put it down! Saving Italy is a page turner with a com

    I couldn’t put it down! Saving Italy is a page turner with a compelling narrative that often keeps you on the edge-of-your-seat with suspense. The drawings that Monuments Man Deane Keller sent home to his young son offer a revealing insight into the man’s mixed emotions about his eagerness to help save the treasures of a country he loved in the midst of war, coupled with the loneliness and isolation he felt being separated from the family he adored. The passion and impulsiveness of Monuments Man Fred Hartt help the thrilling adventure of Saving Italy come alive. Edsel does a great job bringing out the very human side of his complex characters, including a little known Nazi General, Karl Wolff. The book is well-researched with many author interviews noted, but is presented in a way that reads more like an espionage novel. I highly recommend Saving Italy not just to those who love art or WWII History, but to anyone looking for an inspiring story about the human spirit and the sacrifices people make to follow their passion, risking their lives for a cause greater than themselves. Five stars doesn't seem like enough!

    I'd like to thank everyone who had anything to do with putting these books in publication! I lived in both Germany and Italy in the late 70's and early 80's. I visited
    and live in quite a few of the places mentioned in these books. My greatest wonder was the question I asked at many of the museums was "how did all these treasures survive the war'? If you've ever stood in front of the statue of Moses; you'd know they didn't carry it out of that church. This book answered my questions. It's wonderful!
