“Despite its physical and interpretive flaws, this is an important book. Krupp offers us a starting place for those who wish to develop for themselves a fuller biographical view of Pius XII, as well as strive for greater balance in an understanding of this volatile episode in the history of World War II”

Synopsis

Outlines the activities of anti-Catholic organizations and political forces that served to obscure the many works of the Church to combat Nazism, even before it came to power. Then Cardinal Eugenio Pacelli, later Pope Pius XII, was at the vanguard of that fight. The anti-Church propaganda campaign consisted of such publications as John Cornwall's book "Hitler's Pope" and Rolf Hochhuth's fictitious play, "The Deputy". Both are thoroughly examined within. The activities of the KGB's "Disinformation Network" with regard to the anti-Catholic sentiments are also taken up. In effect, the reader will be enlightened by this revelatory work, in which the true details of the Church's heroic involvement during the horrors of World War II are fully examined.
