No dust jacket (as issued). 11th June 1940 and Italian aircraft fly over Malta for the first of more than three thousand bombing raids the Island is to suffer during the longest siege in British history. The day before, Mussolini had declared war on Britain, and in that moment, the tiny Island of Malta became one of the most important strategic pieces of land in the world. Today, malta's valiant story is largely forgotten, but for nearly three years the Island held the key to the war in the Mediterranean and North Africa. Withthe srrival of Axiz Luftwaffe, malta quickly became the most bombed place on earth. Convoys carrying precious supplies suffered appalling losses, but despite starvation and disease, the Islanders continued to hold out. Such was their heroism that George VI took the unprecedented step of awarding the whole Island the George Cross, the highest civilian award for valour. This book follows the story through the eyes of the indvidulas who were there: the pilots, submariners, soldiers and civillians who each provide extraordinary tales of heroism, resilience, love and loss. This is one of the most remarkable stories of the Second World War. Illustrated. Paperback. Seller Inventory # 1304600
