5.0 out of 5 stars A deeply moving and accurate portrayal of Malta at War, 26 July 2003
This review is from: The Kappillan of Malta (CASSELL MILITARY PAPERBACKS) (Paperback)
I can't remember being so moved by a book. My father lived in the caves in Floriana, Malta during the war and this book is the first I've read that portrays the horrors that my family experienced. For a non-Maltese, the author understands and perfectly captures the Maltese sense of humour and the importance of their faith to them. The format is unusual - part historical, part fictional but this works well and eventually I found myself wondering which bits were fictional and which were fact. This is a first class Maltese history book and a first class novel. One question remains, did Dun Salve really exist or is he completely fictional..?
