The German Occupation of the Channel Islands

by Charles Cruickshank The History Press

The official history of the German Occupation of the Channel Islands.  This book is based on previously untapped sources, including papers from government departments and the Island's own wartime files, as well as those left behind by the Feldkommandantur in Guernsey and Jersey.

Dr Cruickshank provides a full account of the German invasion, the subsequent landing 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 the support for the Resistance.  Essential reading for anyone interested in the effects of war.

The author was educated at Aberdeen Grammar School, Aberdeen University, Hertford College, Oxford and Edinburgh University before joining the Ministry of Supply in 1940 and retiring in 1973.
