Hitler's Pope has been criticized for its accuracy and dedication to objective history, and Mr. Cornwell admits that since its publication, his views have undergone revision.
'While I believe with many commentators that the pope might have done more to help the plight of the Jews, I now feel, 10 years after the publication of my book, that his scope for action was severely limited and I am prepared to state this,' he said"
For those of you who need a translation from Leftwing Academic (redundant, I know) to English:
"I was completely wrong about Pope Pius XII but that's not the point. I was trying to fit the facts into my narrative. That is, I had the conclusion I wanted and was working backwards. Kind of like a cheap hack mystery novelist."
