The epic fight for survival by the Island of Malta is a collection of many incredible stories and, surprisingly, a great number of those were not told adequately in the 75 years since the Siege of Malta. Publishers often time the publication of new history books to coincide with important anniversaries, bringing a welter of very good books to market. The reader then has to decide how many can be afforded and find shelf space for them. Amongst a crop of great new Siege of Malta books this is one that should not be avoided – rob your grannies, build a bookcase, whatever it takes. – Most Highly Recommended.
