Battlefield – The Battle Of The Mediterranean
For many years the ‘Battlefield’ series has led the way in World War II documentary programming, establishing itself as a firm favourite with generations of viewers from around the world.
The Battle of the Mediterranean was the name given to the naval campaign fought in the Mediterranean Sea during World War II, from 10 June 1940 to 2 May 1945.
For the most part, the campaign was fought between the Italian Royal Navy (Regia Marina), supported by other Axis naval and air forces, and the British Royal Navy, supported by other Allied naval forces, such as Australia, the Netherlands, Poland and Greece. American naval and air units joined the Allied side in 1942.
