A key Allied possession in the Mediterranean, Malta provided a base for attacking Axis supply convoys to North Africa. Effectively under siege, the island's fuel and food reserves were badly depleted by the summer of 1942. As Field Marshal Erwin Rommel’s forces had recently won the Battle of Gazala before being halted at El Alamein, the strategic situation in North Africa was extremely delicate.

Following 2 failures to resupply the island in June, Malta's air commander, Air Vice Marshal Keith Park, a veteran of the Battle of Britain, informed London that only a few weeks of aviation fuel remained for his aircraft. The Admiralty began planning for a new operation to transport supplies to Malta.

In the fighting during Operation Pedestal, the Allies lost 1 carrier, 2 light cruisers, 1 destroyer, as well as 9 merchantmen. Casualties numbered between 350 and 400 killed. Axis losses numbered 42 aircraft downed, 2 submarines sunk, and 2 cruisers damaged. Though the convoy and Royal Navy sustained heavy losses, Operation Pedestal proved a strategic success as the supplies that arrived, most importantly Ohio's fuel cargo, allowed the island to continue resisting Axis forces.

As 1942 progressed, Allied forces operating from Malta proved highly effective at disrupting Axis convoys to North Africa and deprived Rommel of badly needed supplies and reinforcements. Weakened, he was badly defeated at the Second Battle of El Alamein in October-November.
