I found a couple sections a bit dry, but overall a fantastic, very interesting read.

This book is a detailed account of how Hitler, Goering, unscrupulous and greedy art dealers and the Nazi's managed to steal and/or destroy much of the art work, furniture, rugs, tapestries, jewelry etc in Europe while they fought to conquer everything in site…It is absolutely fascinating. She writes about the dedicated 'monuments men' who fought for the return of all 'stolen' artwork to their original owners… even those of Germany… although many would have liked to use the German treasures as restitution for the war… the book would be enhanced by photos but a computer or other device to check on that each painting etc looked like worked fine… I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is a lover of art or history…. it is definitely look at WW II from a very different and also horrifying perspective.
