The War in the Channel Islands Then and Now

by Winston G. Ramsey

Part of the After the Battle S. Series

The War in the Channel Islands Then and Now Synopsis

Besides being the only British territory occupied by the Germans in the World War II, it is perhaps less generally known that the Channel Islands were fortified out of all proportion to the rest of Hitler's Atlantic Wall: a legacy that is explored in individual chapters on Alderney , Guernsey, Jersey and Sark. First-hand accounts of all seven Commando raids are brought together plus a summary of how the islands' hotels were put to use by their German guests may intrigue present day visitors. There is a review of war museums which aims to give an insight into the variety of relics that enthusiasts have had the foresight to preserve. The war cemeteries are described, and there is a list of every grave of both sides of the two World Wars. Annotated aerial photographs also form an important aspect of this work.
