To celebrate the release of the award-winning film, The Monuments Men, the Telegraph has teamed up with Arrow, Penguin Random House and Twentieth Century Fox to offer readers a free copy of the original novel by Robert M. Edsel On Saturday 15 February 2014.
Based on the true story of the greatest treasure hunt in history, The Monuments Men focuses on an unlikely World War II platoon, tasked with going into Germany to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and returning them to their rightful owners.A seemingly I mpossible mission: with the art trapped behind enemy lines, and with the German army under orders to destroy everything as the Reich fell, how could these guys – seven museum directors, curators, and art historians, all more familiar with Michelangelo than the M-1 – possibly hope to succeed? But as the Monuments Men, as they were called, found themselves in a race against time to avoid the destruction of 1,000 years of culture, they would risk their lives to protect and defend mankind’s greatest achievements.
I would also like to see the award winning film, The Monuments Men which is based on the novel of the same name and is directed by and stars George Clooney and co stars Matt Damon, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Jean Dujardin, Bob Balaban, Hugh Bonneville, and Cate Blanchett. The screenplay is by George Clooney & Grant Heslov, And it is Produced by Grant Heslov and George Clooney.
