Lexington author Jack DuArte will sign his latest novel, Malta. The Island of Malta and its strategic location in the Mediterranean has made it a prime target for the Axis powers. In 1942, the Luftwaffe began a horrendous bombing attack. A handful of heroic British RAF pilots began ferrying new Spitfire Mark VI’s to help defend the island. Once there, their troubles begin in earnest. Malta features incredible action over the skies of the Mediterranean and Sicily as well as the remarkable story of what Malta’s defenders faced in their struggle.
