EdulineSKU: 9789995746278



Since Malta was the most important British Fortress in the Mediterranean and home to the British Mediterranean Fleet it could not escape involvement in the First World War (1914-18). Though Malta was not a front line state the Maltese were not shielded from the horrors of war. An estimated 24,000 Maltese served with the British services and the Maltese Labour Battalion took part in the Gallipoli Campaign against Turkey. Royal Malta Artillery soldiers manufactured 68,000 hand grenades at the Dockyard for the Dardanelles army. Sixteen Maltese soldiers died in an explosion during production.
