My aunt passed this book along to me after she had trouble plowing through it. She thought I would like it and I did. It was fasinating! Having lived in Germany in the late 60's I related to many of the thoughts expressed by the Monuments Men. I loved the historical detail, journal entries and letters and it confirmed my respect for General Eisenhower. He wrote in a letter to his wife, "I made the visit(Ohrduf work camp)deliberately, in order to be in position to give first-hand evidence of these things if ever, in the future, there develops a tendency to charge these allegations merely to 'propaganda.' Although 23 years later, I too saw many of cities, memorial sites and even some of the destruction. It changed my life.
