The great job of Robert Edsel is the description of the men and women involved in an huge game of chess between arrogant thieves, servants, art enthusiasts and servants of the state.
It is a part of the history of ww2 known mainly between the art professional, Edsel lights the some of the episodes of that war across Europe and the curiosity to learn more about rises. The Italian part of the history isn't in this book, you can find it in "Rescuing da Vinci" by Edsel also.
This is one of the most interesting and enjoyable books I have ever read. If you read one book this year, read this one. You will be introduced to a fascinating group of heroic men who helped save 500 years of human accomplishment. No movie could ever do this book justice.
I found this book to be a very hard read many times going off on tangents that either bored me, were irrelevant to the book, or could have been marked as a footnote. I do not know the author's background but I felt this was an amateurish level of writing with little subject matter on point.. I do not know how they made a movie out of this but then again the movie was almost as bad as this book.
This book is good however it really is more like a documentry. It keeps jumping back and forth to different times and people and in many cases repeates the same subject over and over. Interesting but not a story. I would only recommend this to a history buff.
