cites new evidence indicating that Pius deliberately stifled even a mild but perfectly feasible protest in the case of the roundup. meticulous scholarship.

I suspect it's an alternate title of "The Battle for Rome", but haven't found confirmation of that yet. (On the other hand, haven't looked beyond the information within the book itself for confirmation. Has done nothing positive for my general view of the Roman Curia, nor the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church entire.

This is the epic story of the brutal occupation of Rome by the Germans after the fall of Mussolini in July 1943 up to the capture of the city by General Mark Clark.

In The Battle for Rome, Robert Katz vividly recreates the drama of the occupation and offers new information from recently declassified documents to explain the intentions of the rival forces. One of the enduring myths of World War II is the legend that Rome was an "open city," free from military activity. In fact the German occupation was brutal, beginning almost immediately with the first roundup of Jews in Italy.

This is the epic story of the brutal occupation of Rome by the Germans after the fall of Mussolini in July 1943 up to the capture of the city by General Mark Clark in June 1944. Swelling to nearly twice its usual size with more than a million refugees from the countryside, Rome became a city of spies, double agents, informers, torturers, escaped Allied war prisoners, hunted Jews and hungry people. The city was the focus for four groups, each anathema to the others: the Allies, trying to capture Rome as their first shining prize of the war but discovering impregnable armour instead; the Germans, trying to throw the intruders back into the sea, holding Rome hostage and using it rapaciously as a supply line to the front; the Pope, trying to bring the West and the Germans to terms and save the world from Communism and the Vatican City from destruction; and the partisans, trying to redeem Italy's honour by making Rome untenable for the occupiers.

This is not a review for the book itself. This book was published originally under the title: The Battle for Rome. If you've read that don't be an idiot like I was and purchase this book. I'm not sure if Fatal Silence was published for a different audience, ie the UK or Europe but in any case it is identical.
