Pius XII and the Second World War
Pierre Blet SJ
This is the first one-volume history, based on the Vatican archives, of Pope Pius XII and his dealing with the contesting powers and with the Jews during World War II. Criticized after his death for allegedly doing little to alleviate the plight of the Jews trapped by the war, Pius XII emerges on these pages as far more complex a man and more energetic on work for peace than the record heretofore suggested.
