Summary
At the height of the Third Reich, Europe was powerless to stop the Nazi war machine. Likewise, its many institutions were unable to curb Nazi pillaging. As an avid art enthusiast, Adolph Hitler ordered his minions to purloin the world's art so that he could add it to his growing collection. However, he also commanded the destruction of any art piece that did not satisfy him. Here, Robert Edsel tells the tale of several museum directors who infiltrated Nazi Europe to save its art
