Fortress Malta turns out to be an excellent example of an almost abandoned form – steadily patriotic narrative history, balanced and fair…. Holland not only pays tribute to the skill of the German pilots who made Malta, at the height of its siege, the most bombed place on earth; more unusually, he illustrates how important was contribution of the Italian air and naval forces to the Axis effort on the Mediterranean – Jan Morris, New Statesman.
