A conversation with author Robert Edsel
Author Robert Edsel discusses his new book, "Rescuing da Vinci". Edsel says that the campaign to protect Europe's artistic and cultural heritage during the conflict is a new way of understanding the magnitude and impact of the Second World War. Edsel's work chronicles the story of the "Monument's Men", a group of 350 men and women from 12 Allied nations, who volunteered to protect great works of art during the war.
