A major reassessment of a key point of British procedure and defence coverage within the first half the 20th century. The main contribution of this new study is an research of the function of Malta in British army technique, as deliberate and because it really built, within the interval among the mid Nineteen Twenties and the top of the warfare in North Africa in could 1943. It demonstrates that the now extensively approved trust that Malta was once 'written off as indefensible' prior to the warfare used to be improper, and specializes in Malta's genuine wartime function within the Mediterranean battle, assessing the varied merits, many usually neglected, that the British derived from retention of the island. The conclusions made problem contemporary assertions that Malta's contribution used to be of restricted price and may be of significant curiosity to either scholars and execs within the box.
