Product description


Other scholars...have written about the Vatican s connection with the German Resistance, but never with the detail, insight, and proof Riebling marshals here.... [A] groundbreaking new history of the Vatican-German Resistance.... Writing with the craft of a novelist and the conscience of a meticulous scholar, Riebling has produced a masterly account of these events. --National Review

Mark Riebling takes readers into the seldom-explored mysterious world of Vatican espionage with a deeply researched and fresh account that reads like a spy thriller. The crackling narrative of Church of Spies delivers an important and compelling addition to the debate over the legacy of Pius XII, the most powerful and complex Pope of modern times. --Gerald Posner, author of God s Bankers: A History of Money and Power at the Vatican

Riebling, an expert on secret intelligence, compellingly explores the papacy s involvement in espionage during World War II.... This book has much to surprise, especially the many German officers, separately and together, involved in attempts on Hitler s life.... Pius, vilified by critics who believed he ignored Germany s atrocities, comes off as a politically savvy man who realized his interference would precipitate Hitler s mortal overreaction against German Catholics. Not only a dramatic disclosure of the Vatican s covert actions, but also an absorbing, polished story for all readers of World War II history. --Kirkus

Book Description

In this stunning revision of the role of "Hitler's Pope" in WWII, one of our top intelligence experts recasts Pius XII-allegedly a Nazi sympathizer-as an anti-Nazi spymaster
