The Channel Islands remain famous for the surviving German fortifications, but new controversies have surfaced in recent years concerning the use of slave labor in construction, reprisals against the local population, and whether attempts by local officials to maintain a normal situation constituted collaboration.
The author, a renowned military historian, examines these questions with complete candor, in addition to his study of the famous fortifications. All of the wartime events and the islands and their fortifications as they are today are covered in the popular Battleground Europe style, with illustrations, maps and then-and-now photographs.
