Living with the Enemy
During World War Two the Channel Islands were the only part of Britain to be overrun by the Germans.
This book shows that Islanders learned how to contend with Nazi regulations, how to survive and how to trust those Germans whose human side was often in contrast to the brutality of Hitler’s regime. First hand accounts from both sides of the occupation from its beginning in 1940 to the liberation five years later make a unique record of the great conflict of the twentieth century as reflected in the affairs of these small island communities.
Jack Higgins review: “A stunning account of how a small population with a belief in themselves, their own integrity and loyalty to the Crown were able to stand up to a country, which at the time, controlled the whole of Europe but most importantly played their own part in the eventual destruction of the Third Reich.”
