Wine and War: the French, the Nazis, and the Battle for France's Greatest Treasure by Don and Petie Kladsrtup

If you are familiar with "The Monuments Men", you will find this a fascinating tale of how the French people tried to protect their famed wineries and vineyards from the epic battle taking place in France during World War II. The story involves spies and skulduggery, the French underground, and greedy Nazi leaders who want all the best wines for their own cellars. How the vintners fooled the Nazis and saved their wines makes an interesting read.
