Siege of Malta 1565

Posted by Mart17 on 06 Feb 2020, 13:19

First I read a book about the siege in 1565, then I visited Malta (what a great place! lots of interesting museums and historical places) and eventually I made this small diorama :)

Beauty! One of the most interesting topics in the wars of the 16th century is the confrontation between Hospitallers and Ottomans in the Mediterranean Sea!
