The siege of Malta: A brutal combat. A test of courage. A battle that will change history.

Previously published as CLASH OF EMPIRES: THE GREAT SIEGE.

1565: a small island in the middle of the Mediterranean stands gatekeeper between East and West. It is about to become the scene for one of the most powerful stories of bravery, battle and bloodlust: the siege of Malta.

Formed in the Holy Land in the 11th century, a small band of knights had long sought a home. Driven from their lands by Ottoman might, they came to rest in Malta from where they watched the Turks and corsairs raid the Spanish empire.

As word came from Constantinople that Malta was in the sights of the Ottoman Empire, all of Europe watched a force of over 30,000 men besieged the island – peopled by 500 knights and a few thousand local soldiers.

On that small rock an epic struggle will be played out – the story of individual men, warriors and slaves, but also the story of two worlds colliding.
