‘A masterly work of profound research and reflection, objective and humane’ Hugh Trevor-Roper, Sunday Telegraph

What would have happened if the Nazis had invaded Britain? How would the British people have responded – with resistance or collaboration? In Madeleine Bunting’s pioneering study, we begin to find the answers to this age-old question.

Though rarely remembered today, the Nazis occupied the British Channel Islands for much of the Second World War. In piecing together the fragments left behind – from the love affairs between island women and German soldiers, the betrayals and black marketeering, to the individual acts of resistance – Madeleine Bunting has brought this uncomfortable episode of British history into full view with spellbinding clarity.

Madeleine Bunting is a superb chronicler of what happened - if you want a classic example of the dilemmas of Resistance, here it is. - Professor Norman Stone, The Times

A masterly work of profound research and reflection, objective and humane - Hugh Trevor-Roper, Sunday Telegraph

I am full of admiration for this book. By careful research and sensitive use of light and shade, Ms Bunting holds the reader's attention through an uncomfortable passage in our history - and one which we have been most reluctant to inform ourselves - Alan Clark, Guardian

Excellently researched... This book...is an important historical document, if an uncomfortable one, in the understanding of our national character - John Mortimer, Sunday Times

[An] excellent book...thoroughly unflinching, fair-minded, humane and sensitive - Jonathan Keates, Evening Standard
