Wing Commander Gibbs offers a detailed account of his time in Egypt and Malta between spring and September 1942. Posted as Flight Commander of a Beaufort Squadron on Malta thoughout the critical summer of that year, he remained dedicated to the airborne torpedo as a weapon of war against shipping. Fighting uphill battles against his superiors, he succeeded in changing not only tactical but also strategic policy, and they were "his" bombs that stopped Rommel's supplies from getting through. Published to mark the Royal visit to Malta for the 50th anniversary celebrations of the George Cross, this story of courage and endeavour offers insights into the battle for Malta and the Middle East.
