Description - A Special Mission by Dan Kurzman

In September, 1943, Adolf Hitler, furious at the ouster of Mussolini, sent German troops into Rome with plans to deport Romes Jews to Auschwitz. Hitler also ordered SS General Karl Wolff, who had been Heinrich Himmlers chief aide, to occupy the Vatican and kidnap Pope Pius XII. But Wolff began playing a dangerous game: stalling Hitlers kidnap plot, while blackmailing the pope into silence as the Jews were rounded up. This tale of intrigue and betrayal is one of the most important untold stories of World War II, and A Special Mission is the only book to give the full incredible account of Hitlers kidnap plot and its far-reaching consequences.
