June Italian aircraft pummel the idyllic Mediterranean island of Malta It is the first of more than three thousand raids that the island will suffer as it becomes the most bombed place on earth The day before Mussolini had declared war on Britain and in that moment the tiny island of Malta slightly larger than Cape Codbecame one of the most important strategic pieces of land in the world br br Today this valiant story is largely forgotten but James Holland offers a riveting portrait of the siege that helped determine victory or defeat in World War II For nearly three years Malta held the key to dominance in the Mediterranean and North Africa Lying between Italy and Libya Malta was the ideal place from which to attack shipping lines supplying Italian and German forces in North Africa To save Egypt the Suez Canal and the Middle East oil fields from Nazi control it was essential that the island be held at all costs br br The Axis powers were equally determined to annihilate Malta In two months aloneMarch and April more bombs fell on Malta than on London during the entire Blitz A small band of fighter pilots facing the Luftwaffe and Regia Aeronautica a garrison of British and American troops and a stubborn local population refused to surrender to vastly superior forces Despite starvation and disease the Maltese bravely held out Not only did they hang on their torpedo bombers and submariners continued to sink critical amounts of Rommel s supplies In honor of this tenacity and bravery George VI bestowed the George Cross the highest civilian award for valor upon the entire island br br Fortress Malta follows the story through the eyes of individuals who were there the pilots submariners soldiers and civilians who provide the tales of heroism resilience love and loss Using interviews with survivors letters and diaries never before published James Holland brings to life this extraordinary real life David and Goliath battle in a moving astonishing narrative, If Hitler fails to invade or destroy Britain he has lost the war Churchill said in the summer of He was right The Battle of Britain was a crucial turning point in the history of the Second World War Had Britain s defences collapsed Hitler would have dominated all of Europe and been able to turn his full attention east to the Soviet Union br br The German invasion of France and the Low Countries in May was unlike any the world had ever seen It hit with a force and aggression that no one could counter and in just a few short weeks all in their way crumbled under the force of the Nazi hammer blow With France facing defeat and with British forces pressed back to the Channel there were few who believed Britain could possibly survive Soon it seemed Hitler would have all of Europe at his feet br br Yet Hitler s forces were not quite the Goliath they at first seemed while her leadership lacked the single minded purpose vision and direction that had led to such success on land Nor was Britain any David Thanks to a sophisticated defensive system and the combined efforts of the RAF Royal Navy as well as the mounting sense of collective defiance led by a new Prime Minister Britain was not ready to roll over just yet br br From clashes between coastal convoys and i Schnellboote i in the Channel to astonishing last stands in Flanders and from the slaughter by the U boats in the icy Atlantic to the dramatic aerial battles over England i The Battle of Britain i tells this most epic of stories from all sides drawing on extensive new research from around the world In so doing it paints a complete picture of that extraordinary summer a time in which the fate of the world truly hung by a thread, Jack Tanner s war takes him to the treacherous sands of the North African desert br br August North Africa The desert war hangs in the balance Although their retreat has finally been halted morale in the British Army is at rock bottom When the commander of the Eighth Army General Gott is killed it seems that foul play is at work An impenetrable Axis spy circuit could be compromising any hope the Allies have of stemming the Nazi tide br br Jack Tanner recovering from wounds in a Cairo hospital is astonished to receive a battlefield commission which will propel him into a very different world when he returns to action Fit once more he finds himself facing the full onslaught of Rommel s latest offensive br br In its aftermath Tanner and his trusty sidekick Sykes are recruited to work behind the Axis lines in a desperate attempt to take the fight to the Nazis But the murky world of subterfuge deceit and murder they find themselves a million miles away from the certainties of the battlefield and somehow they must discover who they can trust in the cat and mouse world of counter espionage br br b Hellfire b sees Tanner fighting his way through his most dangerous adventure yet one that takes him from the dark backstreets of Cairo to the open Mediterranean and finally to one of the decisive clashes of the entire war the Battle of Alamein br br br i From the Trade Paperback edition i, Much of what we think we know about World War II is steeped in myth rather than fact For seven decades we have looked at this cataclysmic conflict in much the same way particularly when it comes to the war in the western theater In this sweeping narrative history the first of three volumes British historian and contrarian James Holland deploys deep research incisive analysis and a profound sense of humanity to revise and enhance our understanding of one of the most significant events in history br br It is commonly held that at the outset of war Germany had the best army in the world and that Britain barely managed to hold out against it until the Americans declared war and overwhelmed Nazi military prowess with economic might But the picture looked much different in In advance of its Polish offensive Germany was short on resources tanks and trained soldiers Meanwhile Britain and France had more men in uniform than Germany and considerably greater naval power and Britain was the richest country in Europe with a massive empire at its disposal Hitler was bluffing when he called for the wholesale destruction of Poland but his bet that Western Europe wouldn t get involved turned out to be fatally wrong br br Beginning with the lead up to the outbreak of war in and ending in the middle of on the eve of the Nazi invasion of Russia i The War in the West Volume I i covers the war on several levels from fascinating tactical revelations blitzkrieg Holland argues is a myth to the personal stories of a German U boat captain a French reserve officer a son in law of Mussolini an American construction tycoon and civilians across the war zone This is a major history destined to generate significant scholarly debate and reader interest
