The Model Occupation

Rating
`A masterly work of profound research and reflection, objective and humane' Hugh Trevor-Roper, Sunday Telegraph What would have happened if the Nazis had invaded Britain? How would the British people have responded - with resistance or collaboration? In Madeleine Bunting's pioneering study, we begin to find the answers to this age-old question. Though rarely remembered today, the Nazis occupied the British Channel Islands for much of the Second World War. In piecing together the fragments left behind - from the love affairs between island women and German soldiers, the betrayals and black marketeering, to the individual acts of resistance - Madeleine Bunting has brought this uncomfortable episode of British history into full view with spellbinding clarity.

By careful research and sensitive use of light and shade, Ms Bunting holds the reader's attention through an uncomfortable passage in our history - and one which we have been most reluctant to inform ourselves" -- Alan Clark * Guardian * "Excellently researched... This book...is an important historical document, if an uncomfortable one, in the understanding of our national character" -- John Mortimer * Sunday Times * "[An] excellent book...thoroughly unflinching, fair-minded, humane and sensitive" -- Jonathan Keates * Evening Standard *
