Even as Adolf Hitler was once trying to take over the western international, his armies have been methodically looking and hoarding the best paintings treasures in Europe. The Fuehrer had started cataloguing the paintings he deliberate to assemble in addition to the artwork he could wreck: "degenerate" works he despised.
In a race opposed to time, in the back of enemy traces, usually unarmed, a different strength of American and British museum administrators, curators, artwork historians, and others, known as the Monuments males, risked their lives scouring Europe to avoid the destruction of hundreds of thousands of years of tradition.
