9780316240079: The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves, and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History
Quatrième de couverture :

Now a major film starring GEORGE CLOONEY, MATT DAMON, CATE BLANCHETT, BILL MURRAY, JOHN GOODMAN, HUGH BONNEVILLE, BOB BALABAN, JEAN DUJARDIN and DIMITRI LEONIDAS.
What if I told you that there was an epic story about World War II that has not been told, involving the most unlikely group of heroes?
What if I told you there was a group of men on the front lines who didn’t carry machine guns or drive tanks; a new kind of soldier, one charged with saving, not destroying.
From caves to castles in a thrilling race against time, these men risked their lives daily to save hundreds of thousands of the world’s greatest works of art.
THEY were the Monuments Men, and THIS is their extraordinary true story.

‘Remarkable’ Washington Post

‘Engaging, inspiring’ Publishers Weekly

Présentation de l'éditeur :

At the same time Adolf Hitler was attempting to take over the western world, his armies were methodically seeking and hoarding the finest art treasures in Europe. The Fuehrer had begun cataloguing the art he planned to collect as well as the art he would destroy: "degenerate" works he despised.
In a race against time, behind enemy lines, often unarmed, a special force of American and British museum directors, curators, art historians, and others, called the Momuments Men, risked their lives scouring Europe to prevent the destruction of thousands of years of culture.
Focusing on the eleven-month period between D-Day and V-E Day, this fascinating account follows six Monuments Men and their impossible mission to save the world's great art from the Nazis.

Description du livre Little, Brown. 1 Paperback(s), 2009. soft. État : New. From 1943 to 1951, 350 men and women from 13 Allied nations served in the Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives section (MFAA) of the Allied armed forces, the first and most ambitious effort in history to preserve the world's cultural heritage in times of war. They were known simply as Monuments Men, tasked with finding the looted treasures of Europe before the Nazis could destroy them. This book—the basis for the film of the same name starring Matt Damon and George Clooney—is the story of eight of these men in the forward operating theatre, including America's top art conservator, an up-and-coming young museum curator, a sculptor, a straight-arrow architect, a gay New York cultural impresario, and an infantry private with first-hand experience as a victim of the Nazi regime. 598.
