This is the story of a brave island and how
it won the George Cross - still proudly
displayed on the nation's flag.
In 1942 Britain was clinging to the island
of Malta since it was critical to keeping
Allied supply lines open. The Axis also wanted
it for their own supply lines. Plenty of
realistic re-enactments and archival combat
footage as the British are beseiged and try
to fight off the Luftwaffe. Against this
background, a RAF reconnaissance photographer's
romance with a local girl is endangered as he
tries to plot enemy movements.
