From the cover: “Why did Britain seize or acquire bases in the Mediterranean, and for what reasons did she decide to give them up or keep them? As British power and interests changed so did her interests in the Mediterranean. Why were some bases retained rather than others? What is the future for Gibraltar and the sovereign bases in Cyprus? The British in the Mediterranean provides a brief description of the Mediterranean basin and a history of the British military and naval involvement in such places as Tangier, Gibraltar, Malta and Cyprus. Peter Dietz gives an account of the gradual occupation of bases from west to east and the reasons for their acquisition.”
