Read in April, 2012

This was one of the best historical novels I've ever read. My father recommended it to me, but I was hesitant at first. Then, over the course of 3 plane rides (2 hours each, to and from Philadelphia), I started and finished the book. Once you get started it's hard to stop. The race to save civilization (even German civilization) and the hunt for the Nazi storehouses of art pulls you along with it. I was alternately amazed, horrified, and moved while reading this book. It certainly gave me a greater appreciation of what these men, who I had never heard of before picking up this book, did. I would highly recommend it to anyone--it's a fast, enjoyable, and informative read.
