Based  on  the  true  story  of  the  greatest  treasure  hunt  in  history,  The   Monuments  Men  focuses  on  an  unlikely  World  War  II  platoon,  tasked  by  FDR   with  going  into  Germany  to  rescue  artistic  masterpieces  from  Nazi  thieves  and   returning  them  to  their  rightful  owners.  It  would  be  an  impossible  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  1000  years  of  culture,  they  would  risk  their  lives  to  protect  and   defend  mankind’s  greatest  achievements.
