    This quick survey gathers significant facts, aptly paced and illustrated and proves a mighty appetizer as to the general History of the Channel Islands Purchased while on a one day visit in St H lier Ce petit livre n a pas la pr tention de faire une monographie exhaustive du sujet mais se lit bien et offre la lecture une bonne vari t d anecdotes et d aper us de la vie de tous les jours dans les les anglo normandes On apprend en quoi ces les font figure d exception dans l histoire de la Seconde Guerre Mondiale Achet lors d une visite d un jour Jersey

    I was given this book by a relative who had visited the Channel Islands, and was interested in reading it to prepare myself for a visit I will be making to the Channel Islands very shortly I had read several other books on Guernsey and Jersey before reading this one so didn t come at it with a blank slate.This book is absolutely loaded with pictures which I found fascinating and does an excellent job giving an overview of what life was like in the various Channel Islands without going too heavily into detail There are lots of first person memories recounted and lest anyone think the Islanders got away with it easy during the war it makes it very clear that they did not Included in the book are several things told from the viewpoint of the Germans as well.The author stated that the average soldier felt almost as much of a victim of the situation as the people whom he had over run Both the Islanders and the Germans were starving by the last year of the war, and when Red Cross parcels arrived, the Germans could not partake of them.I d highly recommend this book to anyone planning a visit or just interested in what life was like for the Islanders living under the Nazi regime.

    Fascinating but bizarrely structured It skips around somewhat chronologically within otherwise ordered chapters, and the last few chapters seem like an odd recap of everything already covered.

    Bought this whilst on holiday in Jersey it being the story of the German Occupation of the Channel Islands I thought it was pretty interesting.

    Another saga of the Channel Islands under the Nazi regime during WW2 I liked this book because it gave insights about the people both the inhabitants of the islands and the German soldiers The German soldiers were depicted as human, except, of course, the secret police who were just all around nasty I especially enjoyed the ruler of the island Sark She was autocratic, and even the Germans bowed down to her.

    Absolutely fantastic book, so much interesting than a lot of the WW2 books I ve been reading because it looks very closely at the people of the islands and the human face of war and occupation Also extremely useful research material and very in depth and compellingly written.

    Not quite as easy or entertaining as the novels on the same topic, but still good.
