Now HERE'S a 'Da Vinci' book I'd enjoy!

Rescuing Da Vinci

From Military.com-

Rescuing Da Vinci, a new photographic book about a nearly-forgotten group of American WWII heroes. These individuals, nicknamed "Monuments Men" by American GI's, rescued tens of thousands of Western Civilization's greatest art masterpieces and monuments from the clutches of Hitler and the Nazis, including some of the most famous works of Michelangelo, Rembrandt, Rafael, Vermeer, Picasso, Van Gogh and Da Vinci.


That just sounds cool!

=) Thanks for the link! Saving people is the most important thing, of course--but I think saving art, sculpture, etc. is up there too; those things can't be replaced. It seems like that book would be worth it just to look at the pictures. I know a couple of art fans who'd be drooling at the moment.
