Siege of Malta
The Siege of Malta was one of the most important battles of World War 2. Renowned military historian Norm Christie tells the story in this must see documentary.
In 1940 Malta was a quiet little island in the middle of the Mediterranean, but on 10th June 1940 it changed forever when Italy entered the war and Malta became a prime target.
Grand Harbour was the single most important port in the Mediterranean and Malta was a threat to the supply lines, so Italy unleashed a bombing campaign against the island.
Taking Malta also became an obsession for Germany who blockaded the island to starve the population.
This was one of the most important battles of World War 2, with the tiny Island of Malta becoming the most bombed place on earth.
This is the story of the civilians, the gunners, the navy and the legendary fighter pilots who eventually won the siege.
