really liked it
Read in April, 2011

A great story, great layout and wonderful writing. This book reveals an area of WWII and world history that almost no one remembers or knew about. There is enough there to keep the focus of those interested in WWII, Art History, Nazi Germany history, or simply those that study human greed.

It is an easy read that flows well and tells the story of not only the subject matter but the men/women that make this story possible. The sub-plots are just as enjoyable as the main thread. The author then wraps it all up nicely with a final summary of all the players and places that were involved.

Highly recommend to anyone interested in WWII, Art or stories of the human spirit striving to make things right again.

Drew I enjoyed every part of this book from the main subject matter to the individual journeys of each man/women involved.
