In the summer of 1940, Britain stood perilously close to invasion by the Nazis, but what would a British occupation have looked like? We know because, for five years during the Second World War, 50,000 British subjects lived through just that. In Hitler’s British Isles, Duncan Barrett tells the story of how these people coped under such difficult and dangerous circumstances in this important, but neglected, part of our own history of World War II.
