New book: The Ord Diaries

UPDATE: Due to the Coronavirus pandemic and the cancellation of the Guernsey Literary Festival we have made the reluctant decision to postpone the launch until Spring 2021.

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.
