      In the Second World War, Malta was subjected to continual air attacks during a siege lasting nearly two and a half years. This is part of that story, from the early days in June , when only a few Gladiator biplanes were available to combat Italian bombers and fighters, to the intervention of the Luftwaffe and the tenuous defence by outclassed Hurricanes, culminating in the desperate months. "These stirring black and white images have shed light on the RAF air battle over Malta, a ferocious but often forgotten chapter of the Second World War.
