When Mussolini’s bombers broke the peace of a cloudless sky one day in the summer of 1940, they began a siege which was to become one of the epics of the Second World War. Ernle Bradfor’s remarkable chronicle of thet crucial perio in the war-ravaged Mediterranean follow, in dramatic detail, the traumas and triumphs of the next three years. Siege: Malta describes how Hitler repeatedly thres the might of his Luftwaffe against a tenacious and courageous people, and moves finally to a stirring climax that is more tense and gripping than fiction.
