The Longest Battleship-on-Battleship Hit | July 1940

HMS Warspite, take on two Italian Battleships

In July 1940, the British Mediterranean Fleet, of the Royal Navy, set off from Egypt to escort a convoy of ships sailing from Malta; however, within a day, this task had changed, with the Fleet’s C-in-C, Admiral Andrew Cunningham, ordering the convoys to be delayed whilst he turned his Northwards to intercept an Italian Fleet. What followed was a large-scale Naval engagement that would see the British Battleship, HMS Warspite, take on two Italian Battleships that led to her achieving the longest Battleship-on-Battleship hit in Military History.
