Malta 1914-1918

During World War I, Malta was far from the fronts and thus in no imminent danger. The islands were of logistical importance for the Gallipoli Invasion (1915-1916) and for the Salonica Front (1915-1918). Malta saw a concentation of hospitals for the treatment of men wounded in the war.
The islands, traditionally depending on food imports, experienced an increase in prices, most notably in the price of bread.
