Fascinating account of the rise of Eugenio Pacelli to become Pope, and his reign thereafter. Though narratively focusing on Pacelli, the book is also an account of what can only be described as fascism or authoritarian rule within the Catholic Church, as well as the existence of anti-semitism within the Church. Extraordinarily researched and referenced, if at times a little too meticulously recounted. This corner of World War II world politics has rarely seen the light of day. Pacelli cannot be acquitted as he was, at best, willingly inactive when he could have made a difference, or a knowing collaborator with Hitler, at worst. The book certainly has ample evidence of Pacelli's own anti-semitism and fascistic notions with regard to Church rule. Given the length and breadth of his reign, this is necessary reading to understand modern Catholic politics.

Excellent review of the Pope and his standing among his own clerics as well as the world in his papacy. Definitely, one of the best in history, if not THE best.
