Robert M. Edsel's contributions as a WWII historian have brought wide attention and a National Humanities Medal to his Monuments Men Foundation. In Saving Italy, Edsel recounts how, in May 1944, General Eisenhower sent two men--artist Deane Keller and scholar Fred Hartt--on a desperate hunt to locate priceless works of art fallen into Nazi hands. Keller and Hartt would find aid from an unlikely source--top-level Nazi officer General Karl Wolff.
