This book covers the naval battles in the Eastern Mediterranean in1940 and 1941, as the British Navy was called to defend the armies serving in the region from attack by the forces of Italy and Germany. Originally published in 1943, this account contains fascinating air reconnaissance photographs of the fleets and naval encounters. "In an operation covering a Malta convoy at the end of June our cruisers sighted three enemy destroyers of Cape Matapan. They sank one at long range as they fled westward in the failing light. The destroyer Dainty and her flotilla ran into a number of Italian submarines off Crete and disposed of three in quick succession. A flying boat accounted for the fourth and probably the fifth. It was like stamping on a viper's nest."
