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

Now, award-winning journalist John Cornwell has revisited this seminal work of history with a new introduction that both answers his critics and reaffirms his overall thesis that Pius XII, now scheduled to be canonized by the Vatican, weakened the Catholic Church with his endorsement of Hitler--and sealed the fate of the Jews in Europe.
