together, so there have to be adjustments to the story, but i think george clooney and grant his love did a good job, and as i write about in "monuments men," people are going to know this is an american and british-led operation, it had not been done before on this scale, there was historic issue that paved if way for this to happen. the policy of the western allies is to return them, the monuments officers risked their lives or were killed during combat. it's an incredibly noble and upbeat story about world war ii, and if someone wants to know the details and more about the people, it's all there in my book. >> guest: monumentsmen foundation.org has biographies on each one of the 350 or so monuments men and women from 13 nations. we have a lot of photographs that we have some that are in rescuing da vinci, my first book, but a lot of information that we couldn't include in the various books i've written. >> host: two events, both at the white house this past week. you were at the white house for a screening, right? >> guest: yeah. we were invited, george clooney and grant were kind

-- direction provided by george c marshall, who was a big leader in the unified command. the ability to create this unified command structure was one of the things that made it possible. >> here is john from san diego. go ahead. some father was one of 2000 african-american men who landed at omaha and utah beaches on june 6, 1944. thats one of the people drove the truck that supplied ammo and food, and yet you never see any african-americans .epicted in any movie i think it is a distortion of history that some 2000 african-american men were never given honor for what they contribute it to probably the greatest saving that ever occurred. >> i think you are absolutely right. and it is worse than you suggest. it's not just the 2000 african-american that were ashore on omaha and utah beaches. it is that 10% of the entire american army consisted of african-american men who did all the work and made possible -- logistic support work and made all of it possible for the invasion in the first place. but it is not historians and modern-day commentators who overlook that. it is that the archives

monuments men foundation is doing is we are trying to raise v visibility and that is why the george clooney film is doing that is opening. this shows the united states' effort they played in saving these. this isn't segregation. they stole anything of value. the monuments officer rescued whatever was stolen. in iraq, the great tragedy was in the national museum and the culture treasure there that we didn't make protection in the of culture treasure in iraq a priority target. we paid a horrible price. it is work to restore that. we need the president to come forward and reinstate protection and respect for the works of other is people. >> host: brian perry tweet ted e movie was fun, but there is a documentory in the works? >> guest: it is big story. it hasn't been told up until this time. it has taken years to get the books written. i hope we have a chance to do this. i hope we see a future film saving italy. it will present the problems and the different cast of monuments men officers. >> host: what is the photograph on the cover? >> guest: it is of the david. you think about the mo

going to have to put together a german force.ed -- a tremendous george marshall looks at plans to going to france as early as 1942 after pearl harbor. the problem was basically an economic one. we did not have the material resources, or the troops. you have to train troops if you are going to be successful in this. from a political standpoint, franklin roosevelt understood this. imagine if we tried to launch across channel invasion from 1943, when we2 or knew that we do not have the economic resources or the military resources doubt a to have al -- successful commission. imagine if we got pushed back into the ocean, and it was a failure. it was understood that a lot of democratic support would fade away. people would say, it is too hard to defeat hitler, let's leave him with his foils. there was a lot riding on that invasion. we had to get right. that dictates our strategy. we realize we cannot invade and 1942. in 1943, we realize, it will take another year before we are ready to launch and operation that will be successful. in the meantime, we do have to try to take some pressure
