Perhaps no modern day leader of the Roman Catholic Church has sparked as much controversy as Pope Pius XII, the Bishop of Rome during World War II. Was he a Nazi sympathizer? Or did he vehemently oppose Hitler's regime? Professor Ron Rychlak gives a full exploration of the back-ground facts, including discussions of history, religion, politics, diplomacy and military tactics.

Push the XII is indeed a worthy candidate for sainthood. His bravery, deep faith and humility shine forth in this exhaustively researched and well written biography.
Finally, we have a book that lays these falsehoods to rest. The original praise that Pius received from the war time and post war time press and from the Jewish community has been proven to be accurate.
This is a must read for anyone interested in understanding the complex position of the Catholic Church during one of mankind's most difficult periods. (One must always remember, the Catholic Church is not just one entity controlled by the Vicar of Christ but a multifaceted collection of human beings who at times fail to live up to the example of Christ, much as Peter did in the garden.) The book shows that while not all Catholics or Catholic priests were true to their faith Pius the XII was. The revionist view that began as a fictional play by Rolf Hochhuth in 1963 became accepted fact. At last the truth has been spoken!
