Bombardment of Pantellaria, Italy, 11 June 1943

Charles Pears

An action of June 1943 during the Second World War. The small rocky Italian island of Pantellaria lies midway between Tunisia and Sicily, some 140 miles north-west of Malta. Since early in the war it had been of strategic interest to the Allies, but with the surrender of the German forces in Tunisia it became an obvious target for combined British-American attack in spring 1943. Not only would it aid the supply of allied forces in the Middle East and particularly the vital base of Malta, but it would also provide an important base for the proposed invasion of Italy. It was blockaded and bombarded by sea and air until it finally surrendered on 11 June.
