Event description
Max Hastings latest book on Operation Pedestal, The fleet that battled to Malta 1942

About this event

In 1942, the Luftwaffe had a stranglehold on Malta. British attempts to bring in supplies and reinforcements were failing with heavy losses, and the people on Malta were closing in on starvation as the Axis attempted to force their surrender. Over the course of a few fierce days, Britain scraped a victory and ensured Malta’s survival – though at the loss of a horrifying number of ships and lives. It was an emblematic moment when, in the cruel accountancy of war, the price was worth paying.
