Pierre Blet's work will inevitably be compared to Cornwell's work, since they deal with the identical subject. Having read both, there is no doubt that Blet's work is vastly superior and more credible than Cornwell's book. Blet finds numerous writings from the Vatican archives ignored by Cornwell that cast Pius XII in a much more favorable light, leading the reader to wonder whether Cornwell's biases doomed his research from the outset. Blet's work is a much easier read, specifically because he avoids jumping back and forth in time sequences -- as Cornwell did -- to make 'connections' between events. Blet lets the facts speak for themselves. Any readers who have read Cornwell's book owe it to themselves to read this book. When you are done, you will have no faith in Cornwell's research. Although lacking the sensationalism of other works, Blet's work will, in time, become the source on this subject.
