Abstract or Summary
  • The Channel Islands were the only part of the United Kingdom occupied by Germany during World War II. The Occupation began on June 30, 1940 and ended almost five years later on May 9, 1945. The Occupation is divided into four phases: pre-invasion, invasion, occupation and isolation, and liberation. The first phase, pre-invasion, consists of the early stages of World War II when the Channel Islands were under British control. The second phase, invasion of the Islands, includes the German invasion plans, the surrender of the Channel Islands, and the reaction to the invasion. The third phase, occupation and isolation, was the longest and focuses on the plight of the Channel Islanders under German rule. The final phase, liberation, started on May 9, 1945 when the Channel Islands were liberated by the British. My research examined how the Islanders lived during World War II, how the Islanders resisted the Germans, and how the Germans viewed the Islands, both as a propaganda victory and as a military fortress. The Channel Islands will always be set apart from the rest of the United Kingdom because of the unique challenges their inhabitants faced while being occupied during World War II.
