The Monuments Men Infographic

George Clooney’s The Monuments Men is now available on home release Blu Ray and DVD. Struggling to get out of the handsome straightjacket is an interesting story about the squad of art historian experts (actually some 300 in reality, scattered over various fronts) who set out during the waning days of WWII to recover stolen […]
