DEFENDING THE ROCK How Gibraltar Defeated Hitler

£20.00 £6.99

The title is misleading but this is a much needed history … Rankin has researched his theme thoroughly, and his book goes far beyond military history to take in the active spy war fought in the Rock’s shadows, along with the colourful characters who peopled Gibraltar in the war years.By casting the net wide, Nicholas makes the book much more than just about Gibraltar, but brings in Spain, Vichy, Italy, Malta, focussing on the whole Mediterranean aspect of the conflict with interesting digressions on the development of civil government in Gibraltar, the hunt for the Bismark and many others.
