I just read an interesting news feature by John Grehan interviewing the British actor John Nettles for Britain At War magazine about the release of his new documentary on the story behind the only part of British soil to be occupied in WW2. Jon Nettles has a long association with the Channel Islands and has a deep interest in the German occupation. What John discovered in the process that the occupation was far from what we are led to believe. “ I was astonished at the bloody nature of the occupation. Let no-one misunderstand the fear was constantly in the air. The casual nature of the violence meted out to the islanders was shocking’
An interesting read for sure.
