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).
