Somebody sent me an email introducing me to the Monuments Men. I am making it a blog post and taking advantage of the ability to embed videos. This reminds us that our true cultural history is outside of Web 2.0 and that still takes dedicated people to keep it.
Book Page writes, "an account that moves like a Hollywood action adventure…there are heroes to root for, villains to hiss at and an increasingly pressing race against time…Whether you're a fan of art, military history or stories of real-life heroes, the Monuments Men is a treasure worth the hunt".
I hope your blog will profile these great heroes of civilization and share their story with your readers and supporters.
