The Linz file: Hitler's Plunder of Europe’s Art by Charles de Jaeger-First off, the author has a very cool name, doesn’t he? This author De Jaeger published a tv show in 1964, called “Art in Peril” and was involved with the allied art agents of WWII and kept in touch with art developments all over the world. This book is a limited printing that came out of Canada. It is an enthralling detective story that tells of the recovery of thousands of works of art looted from galleries and private collections of Europe by the Nazis during World War II. This book describes Hitler's special Mission (code named Linz-the name he gave to the project of amassing all of this art). This book includes an extensive bibliography, and a list of major works of art that is still missing. This of course is most likely outdated at this point as this hardcover was printed in 1981. It contains 192 pages, including black and white photos of illustrations and artwork. The dust cover is present, this and the book itself are near excellent. This is a bit dated, but still a very interesting read.
