In March 1942, Battle of Britain Spitfire ace, Jack Williams, is one of 15 pilots flying the first Spitfires from the Royal Navy aircraft carrier HMS Eagle to reach the most heavily bombed place on Earth: the tiny Mediterranean island of Malta. Their task is simple, regain control of the air from the Luftwaffe and Regia Aeronautica.

But when not sheltering from incessant bombing by Luftwaffe forces (and the Regia Aeronautica) based only minutes to the north on Sicily, Jack and his fellow pilots are hunted from take off to landing by tens of Messerschmitt 109Fs. Can they, and the Island, survive?

The novel is dedicated to the people of Malta and the pilots from all over the world who fought to protect them. The cover design by Martin Butler is based on the image, "Spitfire Flypast", by Paolo Camera.

Reviewers found the flying scenes in Ron's Battle of Britain novel, "Wings Over Summer", especially vivid and those in 'Wings Over Malta' are no less dynamic. This is because Ron spent much of his 32 years in the Royal Air Force (RAF) as a flying instructor, teaching young men and women to turn upside down, jink and spin in light aircraft. He also picked the brains of several Battle of Britain veterans and current Spitfire pilots.
