Occupied Guernsey Past & Present: from the exact spot by Marco Tersigni & Simon Hamon
Following the success of his first book, Guernsey Past & Present: from the exact spot (also available through this site) – intrepid comparison photographer Marco Tersigni has teamed up with Occupation historian and collector, Simon Hamon, to bring you a brand new selection of his rare and previously unpublished photographs of the Occupation. They have risked all to locate the exact spots for Marco’s comparison images.
This collection covers Castle Cornet, Fort Saumarez, Fermain, Doyle Monument, Batterie Stassburg, Prisoners of War, the Underground Hospital and many, many more. They show, many for the first time, haunting comparisons of familiar island scenes filled with unfamiliar German, occupying forces – along with a fascinating commentary from a leading occupation historian.
Join Marco and Simon on a tour of Guernsey during the occupation from the bombing of the White Rock in June 1940 to the arrival of the Liberating Forces in May 1945 – from the exact spot.
