    The Monuments Men had the credentials and the passion for art to risk their lives for this cause. The story of the rescue of a sixteenth-century Flemish painting details how, in the midst of the fighting, two Monuments Men, Walter Hancock and George Stout, carefully wrote detailed notes on the painting. “The thought came back to him, as it often did: To save the culture of your allies is a small thing. To cherish the culture of your enemy, to risk your life and the life of other men to save it, to give it all back to them as soon as the battle was won it was unheard of, but that was exactly what Walker Hancock and the other Monuments Men intended to do.”.
