About Living With The Enemy and the German Occupation of the Channel Islands
During the Second World War the Channel Islands were the only part of the British Isles to be occupied by German forces. Living with the Enemy tells the unique and true story of life in the Islands under Nazi rule. With eyewitness accounts from both Islanders and German soldiers this book gives an accurate insight into this ill-assorted community at war and portrays how it felt to be living in the shadow of a foreign power. A sample of what the United Kingdom would have experienced should it have fallen. The book is 224 pages and includes over 125 original war time photographs of the Islands under Nazi rule and has a foreword by international best seller Jack Higgins.


by Jack Higgins, Master thriller writer and international bestseller

The Channel Islands hold a unique place in British history, not least because during the Second World War they were the only part of the British Isles to be occupied by the Nazis. For five long years the Swastika flew here in place of the Union Jack and all the worst excesses of Nazi rule were present in some form or other.

The iron fist in the velvet glove policy did not last long. The Secret Field Police employed Gestapo operatives on secondment and many Islanders soon experienced the horror of the early morning knock on the door leading to brutal interrogation in a manner familiar elsewhere in occupied Europe.

Only those who experienced the Occupation know the anguish of it and it has always been particularly distressing to those who lived through it when outsiders complain that there was no resistance movement in the Islands.

Logic alone makes it clear that such action was simply not possible in so small an area and yet many thousands of Channel Islanders received prison sentences of one kind or another for contravening the law of the jackboot.

To be a Jew was a crime under the anti-Semitic laws and even keeping a radio to listen to the BBC news broadcasts meant a stiff prison sentence.

Many Islanders went further, assisting Russian slave workers and others on the run, eventually being sentenced to terms in French prisons or concentration camps such as Ravensbruck and Belsen. In some cases they died there.

As in all occupied countries a small number of people collaborated with the enemy. That fact is meaningless when considered in the context of the unfailing loyalty of the vast majority of Channel Islanders who stubbornly persisted in the face of armed might and brute force in fighting their own war of non co-operation. They never lost faith in their belief that one day liberation would come.

Living with the Enemy is a stunning account of how a small population with a belief in themselves, their own integrity and loyalty to the Crown were able to stand up to a country which at the time controlled the whole of Europe but most importantly played their own part in the eventual destruction of the Third Reich.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good read and generally historically accurate 14. Juli 2012
Von J. Oglesbee - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
If you are interested in just what happened during the German occupation of the channel islands this is a good start. Quite interesting. Mostly accurate, although not an indepth account. Might perk you to want more. This book is somewhat the basis for the PBS TV series "Islands at War", that was well received. The series was set in the fictional setting of "St. Gregory" (that would have been Guernsey). Unfortunately, you were rather left hanging as the second season was never made. The writer died and production was stopped and we never found out what happened to the characters. This book helps a bit if you are still wondering. Most of the characters and events had a real basis in life and their fate is known.

Islands at War and Enemy at the Door are both available on Amazon as book and Video / TV series.

The channel Islands Occupation Society was formed in 1961 and has lots of information and links.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A must read companion to Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society 25. August 2012
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is a must read if you have read and loved The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society: A Novel. This book gives a chronological account of the German occupation of the Channel Islands and includes invaluable memories and anecdotes from Islanders themselves of what they endured. A lot of photographs are also reproduced. Both the invaders and the occupied had an extraordinary experience and this book gives you an idea of the conflicted motivations that the Islanders experienced in trying to minimise the damage done by the Germans to their homeland and survive WWII while trying to resist at the same time with literally little room to move. It's a fascinating look at the compromises and actions of people under extreme pressure. The most interesting thing for me in reading this book was in realising what a masterful job the novel had done in accurately presenting the issues the Islanders faced. I can't say that I enjoyed the writing style which I found somewhat dry and unengaging, however the knowledge shared in this book is golden to any students of fascinating history.

I read this book with great interest. I had always wondered how a group of islands would handle being occupied by the enemy since life on an island is different in many ways. Each of the four islands, Geurnsey, Jersey, Sark, and Alderney handled the occupation in different ways. For the most part, the islanders tolerated the Nazis and quite often the Nazis were relatively friendly. As in other occupied countries, the Nazis rationed food and gas, mostly in their own favor. However, as time went on the Nazis added more and more restrictions on daily living. Black marketeers were more often arrested as were islanders listening to forbidden radios. One tragic event was in 1942 when a little over 2,000 islanders were sent to Germany to be interned for the rest of the war. Overall a very interesting book to read. It gives a very human side to the islands occupation during the war.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Austerity Program 31. Juli 2012
Von Tori Reynolds - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
"Living with the Enemy" provides information that most US citizens do not find in their history books. Seldom does anyone mention that the channel islands were invaded by the Germans during World War II. The Channel Islanders avoided the bombings suffered by their duke, the King of England, and his neighbors, but they were unable to avoid the deprivation and tension that invasion brings. Their invaders were not well provided for, either, so food and clothing and other necessities, even paper, became scarce. The book offers suggestions for surviving on almost nothing.
