Little Malta proved a mighty thorn in the Axis' collective side and undoubtedly decided the conflict in North Africa. The book and its photos, therefore casts another light on this less-known conflict that I found to be a true edge-of-the-seat drama. The civilian efforts at tunneling deep underground, digging out entire settlements in the soft chalk of the island, is a fascinating aspect that just isn't explored as much as how those few British fighters managed to hold-off the Axis forces, etc.
