Storyline

In June 1940 the islanders of Guernsey await the German invasion following bombing raids. Dr. Philip Martel is invited by John Ambrose on behalf of the bailiff to join a negotiating committee in anticipation of occupation, leading his daughter Clare to accuse him of collusion. After the Germans arrive Dr. Martel and the committee face the invaders under Major Richter, who refuses to recognize the island as a demilitarised zone and puts it under martial rule. Clare's boyfriend Peter Porteous and local fisherman Peter Girard attempt to escape by boat but the Germans fire on them, killing the young fisherman. Peter Porteous escapes but the Germans are aware that somebody has tried to elude them. Written by don @ minifie-1
