Product description

Review

"All...told in a competent and interesting way by author Charles Stephenson. I found it fascinating as the Channel Islands are not what one normally thinks of when thinking about WWII... The illustrations of Chris Taylor are absolutely superb and along with his maps, give one a real sense of how intensive the fortifications really were... A truly interesting book on a sidelight of the war. One I found engrossing and I'm sure you will as well." --Scott Van Aken, modelingmadness.com

Synopsis

During World War II, the Germans occupied the undefended Channel Islands from the end of June 1940 until the end of the war, creating a series of defensive positions that was considered the strongest stretch of the Atlantic Wall. The Channel Islands fortifications can be seen as the pinnacle of German engineering during the war. This book describes the design, construction and manning of these defensive positions, as well as the occupation of the Channel Islands by the Germans. It also explores the living conditions on the islands, the only part of Great Britain to be occupied by the Nazis, through to the liberation of the Islands by the Allies.
