I'm currently building a mission for our server covering the Seige of Malta.
Whilst Malta was under siege from the beginning of the war and this lasted several years, there is a period which the tide of the battle had begun to turn. Allied ship convoys from Alexandria and Gibraltar were under serious attack from Axis forces. Malta was on the point of falling, close to running out of food and other supplies. The Luftwaffe were sending up to 300 aircraft at a time in attacks on the island, with the possibility of an invasion imminent.
In 1942 the allied command finally sent in the Spitfire, which at first did not manage to turn the tide, but eventually as numbers built up it began to make a difference. This in turn allowed Hurricanes to concentrate on the bombers while the Spitfires took on the fighters, just as they did in the battle of Britain. Supplies managed to trickle through enough to let the island survive without falling.
