    My father Joseph Gauci recounted to the family here in the US, all the stories of bombardments to his mother’s house – ten times a day….They were all saved by staying in the deep caves.
    It was imperative that the Germans take Malta because they were stuck in Northern Africa with no supplies. Rommell was the General of the German High Command in Africa.
    However they never succeeded to take Malta and the Germans lost that important front.
    Not too many people left that can recounter events of that war….I pray we never have another.
