Their convictions about their duty only strengthened as Germany waged an increasingly desperate battle against the Soviet Union, which they believed was an existential threat to the Catholic Church and German civilization.Wehrmacht Priests unpacks the complex relationship between the Catholic Church and the Nazi regime, including the Church s fierce but futile attempts to preserve its independence under Hi Please click here to ask a question
