However, stating that the book gives an insight into the occupation of Guernsey during WW2 is highly misleading. It does not. In fact in several cases it is factually incorrect, quite wrong. The history of Guernsey, and the Channel Islands as a whole, during WW2 is both fascinating and horrifying. None of this is shown in this book. Unfortunately the book makes use of the story of Louisa Gould to try and add substance but this in fact lets it down.Louisa was one of many; her end was particularly tragic but many others did as much and even more. There is no reference to any of them; nor to the underground press that operated on the island. Surely people who were interested in books and reading would have been interested in such news sources and may even have helped with production of the same. But again no mention.
So much is missing it really is a let down I am afraid. I am not looking forward to the film.
