Siege of Malta on a Grand Scale!

The great siege of Malta, which took place in 1565, is one of history's most famous last stands. There, in the Mediterranean Sea, a small contingent of crusading knights and men at arms stood fast against an overwhelming army of the Ottoman Empire. The siege went on from May through September, and the vastly outnumbered defenders fought off countless attacks by land and sea. Their stout walls were under constant bombardment, their supplies interdicted, their medical services stretched to the limit. But the long-established Hospitalier crusading knights and their Maltese allies fought on.

This playset recreates the battle for Fort St Elmo, a star-shaped crusader outpost which was the scene of some of the most intense fighting of the campaign. As the defenders lost many of their number each day, their casualties had to be evacuated every night by rowing them across the harbor to safety. The same boats brought back contingents of volunteers who knew they were going to meet their doom the next day.

This playset features our largest selection EVER of painted figures: 129 Ottoman infantry by Dulcop, Britains, Reamsa and Cheilea, painted in a variety of authentic uniforms. The 51 defenders are a mix of DSG Hospitalier knights and Monarch Spanish. The ORIGINAL Barzso star fort makes a perfect setting for St. Elmo.
