Reviews

""With this book, Deschner is breaking a taboo in German postwar historiography. In his thrillingly written work, he was the first renowned author to document the close collaboration between the Catholic Church and the Fascists, which, in the Balkans for instance, led to probably the best-concealed mass crimes of modern times. It remains the imperishable merit of Deschner to have publicized these and many other facts, thus making them available to a broad public. A real eye-opener!" --Dr. Peter Priskil, author of Salman Rushdie: Portrait of a Poet and Taslima Nasrin: The Death Order and Its Background "Deschner is probably the most uncompromising author and thinker in the German-speaking world" --Die Weltwoche (Zurich) "[This book] has been researched with exceptional scholarly rigor; it has stood up against hundreds of published critiques; and it has been maintained through hundreds of discussions. I can attest to that." --Blatter fur deutsche and internationale Politik (Cologne)
