Book Description
During the German occupation of Rome from 1942 to 1944, Monsignor Hugh O'Flaherty devoted his time and energy to running an escape organisation for Allied POWs and civilians. By the time the Allies entered Rome, he had saved over 6000 lives. Brian Fleming describes the life of the man who became known as 'the Pimpernel of the Vatican'.
