The Siege of Malta

Commemorating the 75th anniversary

This autumn marks 75 years since the end of the Siege of Malta when this tiny island became the scene of a fierce battle between the Allies and the German and Italian military from 1940-1942. Royal Navy ships and the RAF used the island as a base to attack Axis convoys trying to supply their forces in North Africa. Learn more about the Siege.
