The official history of the German occupation of the
Channel Islands, this book is based on previously
untapped sources of information, including papers from
Government departments, the Island's own wartime files,
as well as files left behind by the Feldkommandantur in
Guernsey and Jersey. Dr Cruickshank provides a full
account of the German invasion, the subsequent landings
of various British agents, raids, and of an attempt by
psychological warfare to end the Occupation. He also
looks at how the islanders and Wehrmacht lived, the
reality of collaboration with the occupying powers, and
the extent of support for the Resistance. The
significance of this episode in the history of the Second
World War, which the Germans saw as their first conquest
of British soil and a springboard to further occupation
of British territory, is essential reading for anyone
interested in the war.
