From the cover: “The Channel Islands have won fame through their natural beauty, distinctive breeds of cattle and well known produce, and also as the only piece of British soil to be occupied (1940-45) by the Germans in World War ll. This ‘New Study’ relates the historic development of the Islands, in peace and war from their geological and prehistoric foundations to the present day. The smaller islands, bird-haunted rocks and offshore reefs are not forgotten, the individual charm of each made apparent. The whole volume is well illustrated with photographs, line drawings and maps.”
