'. an elegant, skilled, indeed major work, an extended parable of our lifetime, subtle, true, generous, heartbreaking." - Daniel Berrigan, SJ. What force does a single dissenting voice have to stop the blitzkrieg of the Nazi war machine? The Fame of their Holiness is a novel of love and hatred, courage and cowardice battling against annihilation and the coming horror of a new dark age. Sited at the battle of Stalingrad, a military prison, Mauthausen concentration camp, in the Ukraine with SS death squads, and a simple Austrian farm community, lives of ordinary Germans and Nazis, soldiers fighting a powerful enemy and despair, imprisoned Jews, Communists and American airmen, and priests on the battlefield struggle for sanity and survival.
