The War File: BATTLEFIELD: THE BATTLE FOR THE MEDITERRANEAN - CROMDVD1112

BATTLEFIELD: THE BATTLE FOR THE MEDITERRANEAN - CROMDVD1112

The struggle for control in this vital theatre of World War II gave the conflict some of its most compelling and powerful stories. The great battles between the Italian Navy and Britain’s Royal Navy dominated the seas during the early years of the war as both sides sought to support their land campaigns in Egypt and Africa. At the same time, Britain struggled to maintain its toehold on Malta, dubbed the “unsinkable aircraft carrier”.
This episode also explores the story of the war in Greece, which was invaded by the Italians in 1940, the Germans in 1941 and finally by the British in 1944. It looks at the constant fight against the German Luftwaffe, which arrived in the Mediterranean in 1941 and did terrible damage to Allied shipping, resulting in the loss of bases in North Africa.
The programme also delves into the fascinating story of ‘Operation Mercury’, the German invasion of Crete, the bloody battle which cost 10,000 lives and the story of the fight for the island of Sicily in 1943, which saw the miraculous evacuation of some 100,000 Axis troops.
