The Unseen War in Gibraltar

During World War II, Spain was, ostensibly, neutral. Gibraltar was a vital, strategic outpost, that helped secure Britains supply lines with Crete, Malta, her armies in Egypt, and, via the Suez Canal, the Far East. As the tide of war changed Gibraltar became a staging post for the invasion of Sicily and the opening of a new front in southern Europe. The tiny outpost was a major thorn in Hitler's side and he and his allies, Italy, went to great lengths to negate Gibraltar's role. These are the stories of what went on behind closed doors, unknown to the general public at the time.
