During the Second World War the Channel Islands were the only part of Britain to be occupied by German forces.

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 more 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.
