Reviews

`Gerri Chanel's account of how France preserved its art from both the destruction of war and the pillaging of the German occupiers reads like a thriller' -- Caroline Moorehead * TLS *
'Fantastic ... At its best this is a story of the inhabitants of a humiliated country doing all in their power to preserve their nation's cultural heritage ... The black-and-white photographs in this book are worth of an art exhibition in themselves.' * Daily Mail *
'Chanel's history is a work of substance and scholarship that should be part of every art history collection and required reading for anyone who cares about Western civilization.' * Booklist (starred review) *
'A brilliant piece of storytelling explaining how the masterpieces of the Louvre escaped Goering's mantelpiece and Himmler's walls ... This is a grippingly written and meticulously researched contribution to the history of the Second World War.' * The Tablet *
'A compelling true account of the men and women who fought to save France's heritage and a fascinating story of art and intrigue.' * France Magazine *
'This book tells a fascinating story.' * Choice *
