Malta Convoys, 1940-1943

4.5  ·  Rating Details ·  2 Ratings  ·  1 Review
From the day Mussolini's Italy declared war on Britain in June 1940, the island of Malta was under siege. Its strategic importance was obvious to both sides, blocking as it did the supply route across the Mediterranean from Italy to the Axis armies in North Africa. It had to be bombed out of existence by the Axis powers and preserved at all costs by the British.

Shelves: research, war
This is the definitive history of the ships that supplied Malta during the second world war. It is well researched and thoroughly readable. These were the forgotten convoys and as I have a personal interest in one of the Blue funnel ships, MV Ajax I was gripped. Woodman has an impressive grasp of all the details and provides footnotes and references if you want to find out more.
