Brookes uses his reporting skills to tell the gripping story of how Chinese scholars and curators dedicated their lives to saving over 60,000 cases of priceless cultural treasures from the invading Japanese army in the 1930s. The narrative takes us on a journey from the Forbidden City and across China as the massive collection was moved from spot to spot to avoid destruction. Not only is this a master class in logistics, it's also a remarkable history of modern, changing China.
