The Spoils of World War II: The American Military's Role in the Stealing of Europe's Treasures by Kenneth D. Alford (Birch Lane Press 1994) (709.4) offers enlightenment on the issues arising from the dispostion of plunder from a defeated people or territory. This volume focuses largely on the famous "Hungarian gold train." The takeaway: sometimes you can't tell who your allies will turn out to be. My rating: 7/10, finished 12/2/13.
