a very different perspective of ww2
17 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

The sacrifice the people of Guernsey made was to tolerate the rules and discipline of the German SS. If it werent for the German invasion Guenrsey

would have been out of the War. There would have been some sacrifices but not at the level the Germans created. One questions what the Germans gained by invading the island in the first place. All the interaction between people on the island caused by the constant surveillance of the Germans is interesting to see develop. The botched raid by the British soldiers reminds me of Entebbe which is a new movie right now.

It was clear the the British military forgot how to fight a war: eg Dunkirk.

These civilian people were fighting back in their own way and the Germans could do little to stop them. They resisted the Germans in a way only the British could.
