Living… in the middle of the World War II. Frank, an art conservationist, realizes that Europe’s artistic treasures are among the many casualties of the devastating war, and he is not pleased. “This is our history," Frank says, "and it’s not to be stolen or destroyed."
Visiting… the frontlines of occupied Europe. After convincing the President of the value of Europe's art, Frank and a team of art historians and conservationists are deployed to save masterpieces as part of the Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives program.
Profession… art historian turned lieutenant. While the two professions seem like complete opposites, it is Frank's passion for art that actually makes him such a effective leader. Frank is disgusted by the Nazis' defacement of historical masterpieces, and he will fight to protect Europe's artistic treasures.
Interests… art, history, and the achievements of human civilization. While some of his commanders may scoff, Frank believes that Europe's artistic treasures are precisely what the Allies should be fighting for. As he tells James Granger, "If you destroy an entire generation of people’s culture, it’s as if they never existed. That’s what Hitler wants, and it’s one thing we can’t allow."
Challenge… saving Europe's artistic history while protecting his men. If rescuing valuable artworks from the Nazis wasn't hard enough, Frank and his team are on the frontlines with the normal infantrymen – and just like normal infantrymen, they're suspectible to being shot or killed.
Personality… passionate, intelligent, and caring. Though far older than most soldiers, Frank has a strong sense of duty and is capable of inspiring others, including President Roosevelt, to feel the reverence he has for art.
