The siege of Malta made no difference to the outcome of the North African campaign during World War II as the British were also occupying Alexandria, Cyprus and Gibraltar. More than 85% of fuel losses by the Axis forces occurred on land, not in the Mediterranean.

Late in the film there is a shot of a merchant ship with a huge hole in her bow. This is actual footage of the Brisbane Star, part of the Pedestal convoy, which remarkably completed the trip under her own power.
