Malta was one of the most intensively bombed areas during the war.

Malta was the base for British subs and aircraft that harassed German supply lines. That explains why it became one of the most ferociously bombed places on the globe. Here is the Opera House in Valetta. Britain's George VI was so touched he gave the Maltese a medal for bravery.

Oper House:- The defence of Malta was an All Arms maximum effort; Royal Navy, Royal Air Force, Army, Merchant Navy all contributing to their limits together with the people of Malta battling in a fight to the finish, a fight that triumphed.
