[bottom corners of book a bit bumped, otherwise no significant wear; jacket shows some traces of wear at extremities, generally bright and attractive despite some soiling to rear panel]. (endpaper maps, B&W photographs) "The Channel Islands were the only part of British territory to be occupied by Germany during the Second World War. This account of those long years spent in the shadow of the Swastika would be absorbing if only for that one reason. The authors, however, as a result of their extensive research, have provided so complete and detailed a picture of the Islanders in their everyday life during the Occupation that the book stands as a fascinating (and sometimes disturbing) study of ordinary men and women -- soldiers, civilians, British and German alike -- under conditions that ranged from the barbarous to the bizarre."
