After D-Day the German garrison was cut off and 'the Hunger winter' resulted. In May 1945 the Germans surrendered amid much rejoicing.

A quick read with good, but limited, information of the Channel Islands during World War 2. It has a good collections of photographs.

This Battleground Europe paperback on the Channel Islands: Jersey, Guernsey, Alderney, and Sark from World War II is afforable and interesting. Lt.Col. Forty also covers this same subject in his hardbound, larger volume "Channel Islands at War." Both books, depending on one's interest, and pocketbook, are worth the time.

I became interested in the channel islands of WWII through some of the fictional works of Jack Higgins. A few plots of his novels either take place there, or make mention of the islands. Also, Mr. Higgins is reported to reside on one of them.

The total population of these 4 islands never exceeded 100,000, and was probably closer to 90,000. The home government in London had a hard time determining how they were to be handled, and finally decided on evacuation. But only just as the Germans were bombing and invading. The resultant occupation, and fortification of these island is the focus of Mr. Forty's interesting narratives.

If you want to study another of the off beaten track type WWII book, or two, these are the ones.

Lt Col George Forty (Ret) has written many books over the years, his "Battle Ground" Series book on the Channel Islands while a very quick read is packed with alot of information. Most People do not know about the Channel Islands or the fact it is the only part of the UK that was held by the Nazi during WW2. If you wish to read somethign different and learn about a key piece of history it is a must read book.
