I'm looking for some detailed information about the Nazi occupation of Jersey between 1940 and 1945. I have googled around but was wondering if there there is any better information than simply Wikipedia or the odd news/blog story. Any help gratefully received.

Jersey Under the Jackboot is a good informative read. 

Plenty here on Amazon starting at a penny (really!)

Lived on both Jersey and Guernsey for a few years in the early 70s (much preferred the latter) - very strange place, then - cat-o-nine-tails for homosexuals, no employment for long hair, extremely strict rules for renting, etc... very Germanic...

Hey guys, thanks for this. Much appreciated. I'm interested in writing a story about that time but need to fill huge gaps in understanding and knowledge before attempting it. Cheers!
