Occupied

by Victoria Robinson Blue Ormer

On 30th June 1940, life in the Bailiwick of Guernsey changed completely when German forces landed and occupied the Island.  For five long years the Islanders faced life under enemy rule bringing with it danger, hardship and heartbreak.

Discover the stories of daily life during the occupation, living under strict rules and watching out for German soldiers at every turn.

Find out about the main events of the period including evacuation, daring commando raids, listening to the secret radios, building fortifications, deportations, facing food shortages, curfews and transport challenges – and finally the joy of liberation – all brought to life through text and colourful illustrations.
