In spite of strenuous efforts by the fighters and anti-aircraft gun defences, the Ju 87 and Ju 88 dive-bombers and strafing Messerschmitts managed to damage and destroy several of the newly delivered aircraft on the ground.

One Man s Window is the journal of Flight Lieutenant Denis Barnham, who arrived on Malta as an inexperienced pilot, but grew into a battle-hardened Spitfire ace over his gruelling two hundred operational hours between 13 April and 21 June 1942. Malta was of great strategic importance to the Allies, and was pivotal to their success in North Africa as it provided the perfect launching pad for aircraft to attack Axis supply ships in the Mediterranean. the island in turn suffered intensive bombing by the German and Italian air forces as a direct result.

This memoir was written by the author as he and his fellow pilots battled against terrible odds and under constant attack. His words reflect honestly the sheer terror of flying from Malta.
