Books of History of the Catholic and WWII


I like to know other books about the Catholic Church, Hitler, Serbian Persecution. I just order about the Myth about Hitler’s Pope.


I read Hitler’s Pope by John Cornwell when if first came out back in 1999. A couple things that still resonate with me today is that Pius XII did not once denounce Hitler while he was in power. Also, Hitler’s birthday was recognized in Roman Catholic churches throughout Germany while Hitler was alive.


You might want to check out H.W.Crocker’s ‘Triumph-The Power and the Glory of the Catholic Church’. It’s a good read and devotes an entire section to the Church’s opposition to the Nazis.
