From 1943 to 1951, 350 or so men and women from thirteen Allied nations served in the Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives section (MFAA) of the Allied armed forces. This was the most ambitious effort in history to preserve the world's cultural heritage during war. These heroes of civilization were quite simply known as 'Monuments Men'.
