Ten (10) Days One Guernsey Summer

by Tony Brassell CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform

France is all but conquered, the Germans are in sight.  Do you give up your home and leave or do you stay and hope they won’t invade? What would you have done?

Written by Tony Brassell, this book based on fact, follows the lives of his grandparents during the second half of June 1940 and follows their day to day issues - facing the prospect of Evacuation, Invasion and Occupation as they became more and more real.

It depicts Guernsey, among the Channel Islands, describing the idyllic way of life, enjoying the beautiful views of Herm, Sark and Cherbourg on the bus from town along with local sights such as Castle Cornet and fishing vessels before the horrors of World War II encroached on their peace.

How did they cope? What actions could they take and how could they stay together? At times heart rending, this is a story based on the real events of 77 years ago.

A must read for anyone interested in this period of history.
