Duncan Barrett: Hitler's British Isles

Mon 19 Nov / Quarterhouse

Duncan Barrett is the internationally bestselling author of The Sugar Girls, GI Brides and The Girls Who Went to War. For his new book, he interviewed more than a hundred men and women who lived through the German occupation of the Channel Islands during WW2. In this talk he shares some of their remarkable tales - the true stories behind the fiction of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society. By turns tragic, heroic and hilarious, they shine a light on what life was like for the only British population to live under the Third Reich and offer a glimpse into the alternate history we might have lived through if Hitler's invasion of mainland Britain had gone ahead as planned.
