As the sun rises above the Mediterranean early one morning of 20 April, 1942, the American carrier USS Wasp launches Spitfires of 601 and 603 Squadrons towards Malta in a desperate and successful attempt to defend the beleaguered island. Their timely arrival turned the tide of the battle for Malta, and ultimately the war in the Mediterranean.
