The Pius Wars.
My review of "Inside the Vatican of Pius XII."
These are the war time memoirs of American diplomat Harold Tittman, Jr., who spent 1941 to 1944 within the Vatican with other Allied diplomats, and who thereby had the opportunity to observe Pius XII and Vatican officials as they attempted to maintain Vatican neutrality. Tittman's memoirs ought to end the nonsense that Pius was indifferent to human suffering or that he was in any way pro-fascist.
