Plots

During the Second World War, a quiet channel island community is thrown into turmoil by the invasion forces of Nazi Germany. - Oliver Watkins

Set during the occupation of the Channel Islands during World War II. The story shows how Island life changed overnight after a German invasion. Islanders were restricted to walking and cycling, town names were changed to German names, clocks were set to continental time, and no society could meet without the permission of German High Command. The focus is on three families, the Dorrs, the Jonases and the Mahys, as they struggle on with day to day life under the restrictive new system. - Anonymous
