It was enjoyable to read about their activity in regards to resupply Malta, but I think you can get that in some other sources also. But what I found really interesting was the operations to bombard Italian seaside targets. It's something that you don't get covered much, because in many American books, the Mediterranean exists in the land combat of Rommel, the resupplying of Malta, operation torch, and the invasion of Sicily and climbing up Italy. So it was refreshing to read about some of the lesser known naval operations in the western Med.
