Description

Malta’s indirect role in the First World War, 1914–1918 is often portrayed as ‘the nurse of the Mediterranean’ to the thousands of wounded allied servicemen of this war who were ferried to Malta and also as a ‘battleship’ servicing the needs of the allied forces.
The task undertaken by the author is an attempt to bring together in one publication the most important aspects related to Malta during the First World War in a practical step-by-step study and reference guide. This bird’s eye view perspective is generously complemented with images and references, many of which have surfaced for the first time.
Coupled with the above is the direct and personal interest of the author, whose mother’s Uncle, John Ellul (Assistant Engineer on HMS Louvain) lost his life when UC 22 sent the ship to the bottom of the Aegean in January 1918.
