Fortress Malta, James Holland (2009)

Maybe Malta was just a piece of history which was not that well known to you, like in our case. Then we visited Malta to found out Malta’s military history is an incredible story of survival against multiple bomb attacks per day. We found out Malta was one of the places most heavily bombard during the entire war.

Being intrigued by its history we were looking for a book for background reading.

Soon we found this book written by James Holland.

The book is a good balance of battlefield history and of personal stories both by the miltary who fought there and of civilians trying to cope with the hardships on the island.

Fortress Malta is avaialble as a hardcover, a paperback, an e-book and as an audio cd.
