Abstract

Little is known in the English-speaking world about the bombing of the Vatican city-state during World War II or about the controversy surrounding the identity of the culprits once responsibility for the attack, and the damage it caused, had been denied by the major belligerent powers. This article gives a documented and eyewitnessed account of the bombing; revisits the controversy in the light of files now available in the National Archives, London; and offers a plausible conclusion about the identity of those responsible and the reason for the attack.
