Abstract

It is no surprise that the wartime history of the Channel Islands, although much of it has been plundered to create quaint narratives for tourism purposes, remains to this day a sensitive topic, especially on Guernsey. ... The history of the Occupation in the islands is a disconcerting challenge, on all sides, the the comforting myths of British exceptionalism, heroism and decency.
