Very interesting, informative read. The book plodded along for about the first two thirds, then picked up the pace towards the end. For research and personal stories I would give this book a 5 star rating. But there was so much more that could have been included. For instance there were numerous items of art identified and from whom it was stolen, but no mention as to how it was returned to the original owner, if it was returned. An appendix or two or three with much more detail could have and should have been included. Nonetheless, an intriguing look at another sordid aspect of Nazi Germany.
