  1. Recently I read the wonderful Max Hastings books, Operation Pedestal, on supplying Malta during the war, and Operation Overlord, on D-Day and after. In reading that last book, it was fascinating to check my late father in law’s Lancaster Bomber flight records, including his D-Day flights, verified by that book.

    I have also ordered his book All Hell Broke Loose, about WWII. His research reports on all participants, not just the winners. He is my new favourite hiarorian writer. Cheers, BT

  2. Oh, and another chum who lives on Malta was able to suggest new source books to locate. Cheers, BT
