Even as the German army conquered Europe and perpetrated the Holocaust, the Nazis purged some art for being "degenerate," then systematically looted art collections from museums and individuals. Even as the Mona Lisa was moved to safety, Hermann Goering went on shopping sprees in Paris to bolster his personal collection. Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award, this history follows the Monuments Men as they tracked the continent's treasures back to the Reich, to the equally rapacious Soviet Union, and around the world.

"Impressively detailed and well-told…. Full of moving and fateful stories of escape, intrigue, betrayal, and sacrifice."—San Francisco Chronicle
