Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0983661804, Paperback)

The Monuments Men and Women were the artists in uniform who tracked down the millions of masterpieces looted by the Nazis. They saved our civilization from its worst barbarism. Glenn is a World War II veteran, one of the Greatest Generation. He drags his grandson, Michael, to Sotheby’s, where their painting is sold for $3,700,000. Over a weekend, Glenn reveals that he was a Monuments Man. Glenn’s experiences bring Michael to an understanding of courage, duty, and character. In the process, Michael learns of Edith Standen and Rose Valland and discovers the courage of the Monuments Women. “Balto’s Nose” speaks to any reader interested in history, art, looting and restitution, personal development, and human value.
