The Fleet that Battled to Malta 1942
A thrilling new account of a little-known naval battle that was a pivotal moment in WWII. In 1942, the Luftwaffe had a stranglehold on the island of Malta. British attempts to bring in supplies and reinforcements were failing, and the people of the island were starving. Operation Pedestal saw an armada of 50 British ships try to fight its way through. Despite heavy losses on all sides the British scrapped a victory and succeeded in reaching Malta. In his signature brilliant style, Max Hastings gives a thrilling narrative of this crucial naval battle.
