The enthralling true story of the Vatican Pimpernel who helped over 6500 people to escape German imprisonment in Rome during the 2nd World War

Hugh O'Flaherty, a Kerryman and a Catholic priest, found himself in Rome when the Second World War broke out. Thus began the story of his life as he set out to establish a network of contacts and helpers to assist escaped prisoners of war. He was such a thorn in the Gestapo's side that he was nicked named 'the Vatican Pimpernel'. By the end of the war he had helped over 6500 people and was hailed a hero awarded many high honours for his bravery.
