Best Selling Books

My interest in the German Occupation led me into publishing for a living and I have published many books over the years about this subject. I have selected just a few of my favourites below to give you an idea should you like more information.

Living with the Enemy

The story of what really happened in the only part of the British Isles to be occupied by the German forces during World War II

Living With The Enemy

Living With The Enemy tells the amazing true story of life in the British Channel Islands during 1940 to 1945 under Nazi rule.

With eye-witness accounts by the people who lived through that traumatic time it draws on first hand experiences and includes a superb collection of over 125 original war time photographs.

This book will give you an accurate insight into this ill-assorted community at war and portrays how it felt to be living in the shadow of a foreign power: a sample of what the United Kingdom would have experienced should it have fallen.

An review:

“ More intimate perspective of German occupation of the only British sovereign territory — the Channel Islands. McLoughlin gives us personal, insightful examination of occupation that brings the history of the era to a balanced, illuminated state. Living with the Enemy gives us a unique glimpse into what it was like. Highly recommended.”

Jewels and Jackboots

The Channel Islands were the only British soil to be occupied in the war, the Islanders the only British citizens to fall under German rule. How the Islanders reacted to the invaders has recently been the subject of heated argument and impassioned debate. In this fascinating book, television personality and history graduate John Nettles fulfills a personal ambition to find and tell the truth about those extraordinary and controversial years.

An review:

“John Nettles has given the world a part of history totally unknown to many. This book is informative and thought provoking. It makes us proud of those who preserved dignity in a horrible time and ashamed of those who took advantage and failed to protect their own (including the highest leaders). Thank you for giving us more of the truth.”

Stinker’s Nine Lives

Thousands of young men of military age joined the British armed forces before the Germans arrived and occupied the Islands.

Clive Kemp tells his remarkable story in his book, Stinker’s Nine Lives.

An review:

“This book made me laugh and made me cry and kept me coming back for more. Many of us knew or still know someone who lived through those difficult years and this book is a tribute to all those ordinary soldiers who endured the horrors of WWII. A great read!”
