Author Edsel narrates with the urgency the Monuments Men themselves must have felt as they hurried to locate art stolen by the Germans during WWII. Edsel focuses on eleven men and one woman who traveled in Italy, France, Belgium, and into Germany itself to locate works of art stolen from museums and private collections and to plan the restoration of buildings of cultural significance that were destroyed in the fighting. The audiobook zigs and zags from one person to the next and from one project to the next, then circles back. Edsel's pace never lets up. This slice of history is compelling and will bring vital knowledge to young listeners. A.R. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2019]
