New book: The Ord Diaries

One of the most important primary sources for those interested in the German Occupation of the Channel Islands, the diaries provide a unique insight into this traumatic period of the islands’ history.

John Nettles has edited the diaries and written an introduction. He will be launching the book at a Guernsey Literary Festival event at Beau Sejour on 4 November 2021. For more details see the Literary Festival website.

“This treasure trove of an eyewitness account has always deserved a wider audience and John Nettles has done a stellar job bringing it to us.”
