Louis Guillemette relates the inside story of how the Government of our small island responded to German Occupation, showing how perseverance in negotiation with an omnipotent enemy helped Guernsey survive.

Sir de Vic Carey

Fascinating to read, impossible to overestimate, it has to be the best of the best of Occupation diaries.
