In March and April 1942 more bombs fell on Malta than on Britain during the first year of the Blitz.
Rommel was determined to take the island, from which the Allies could attack Axis supply lines to North Africa.
This book tells the story through eyewitness accounts: the fighter pilots, anti-aircraft gunners and submariners, and the late cabaret dancer-turned RAF plotter Christina Ratcliffe.
