Hitler's Pope: The Secret History of Pius XII
Viking, 1999 - 430 страница
The "explosive" ("The New York Times") bestseller--now with a new introduction by the author
When "Hitler's Pope," the shocking story of Pope Pius XII that "redefined the history of the twentieth century" ("The Washington Post" ) was originally published, it sparked a firestorm of controversy both inside and outside the Catholic Church.
