SWORDFISH ATTACK AT TARANTO
by Robert Taylor
On 11th November 1940, twenty magnificent but outdated Swordfish biplanes were launched from the carrier HMS Illustrious and headed for Taranto under cover of darkness to deliver one of the most decisive attacks of World War II. Two illuminated the harbour with flares while the remaining Swordfish decimated the Italian navel fleet, re-establishing British naval supremacy in the Mediterranean.
