Goofs Early in the movie, German Wehrmacht (Army) soldiers are operating a truck with a swastika emblem on the door. Guernsey was occupied by regular Wehrmacht troops (319 Infantry Division), so vehicles would have been emblazoned with the Iron Cross. The swastika markings were mainly used by Waffen SS units, which were not posted on the Channel Islands during occupation. See more »

Quotes Dawsey Adams: [narrating, in a letter] Our Friday night book club became a refuge to us. A private freedom to feel the world growing darker all around you, but you only need a candle to see new worlds unfold. That is what we found in our society.
