Edsel, number one New York Times best-selling author of The Monuments Men, brings this story to young listeners for the first time in a sweeping, dynamic adventure detailing history's greatest treasure hunt. As the most destructive war in history ravaged Europe, many of the world's most cherished cultural objects were in harm's way.
