The Monuments Men true adventure story began in Washington, D.C. and continued in battle zones in Italy, France, Belgium, and Germany during and after the war.  Learn about the amazing story of saved art works and historic artifacts and the heroics on the front lines in Europe and the behind-the-scenes strategies.  Listen to stories and see rich illustrations about the real Monuments Men (and women), the military officers who saved art, archives, libraries and cultural monuments in Europe during World War II.
