The true story of a group of Allied
soldiers who risked their lives to rescue a treasure trove of art stolen by the
Nazis could be easily be mistaken for a novel, which is why it also translates
so perfectly into a juicy, nail-biting thriller directed by, co-written by and
starring George Clooney. But the book version contains all the painstaking
historical details and photographs that make such an improbable story so
incredibly and astonishingly real.
