The struggle for control of the Mediterranean in the Second World War began with the British facing the Italian and Vichy French navies but, after more naval actions than were fought in the Atlantic or the Pacific, ended with the British, Italian, Free French and American navies all pitted against the German Kriegsmarine. This study of the war draws on sources from all combatant nations to tell a balanced history of the five-year campaign and dispel some widely held myths.
