The Great Siege Of Malta 1565 is in:
The Great Siege Of Malta is a powerful docu-drama. It is pivotal in the history of the mediaeval knights and yet it is a story as engaging, as stirring and as uplifting today as it was in Voltaire’s time when he wrote “Nothing is better than the Siege of Malta“.
In 1565 Malta was the key to Europe. The Ottoman Empire had extended its control over most the Mediterranean. It the island of Malta could be captured, it could become the staging port for the invasion of the “soft under-belly of Europe”. Holding the key were the knights of St. John and the people of Malta. The Turks has driven the knights from Rhodes and now south to drive them from Malta… in one extraordinary battle… The Great Siege of Malta.
