Grand Harbour, Malta under air attack



DescriptionAn image illustrating Grand Harbour, Malta under air attack, for the series War in Pictures. As can be seen, Grand Harbour was the most heavily bombed location in Malta during the Second World War, (Malta being the most bombed country anywhere in the world per square mile) with most of its buildings reduced to rubble. In this image, a solitary figure looks on with binoculars at the dogfight going on in the sky whilst smoke billows from the harbour.
