For over four centuries, Armorel- let us call it an imaginary Channel Island- had been a haven of peace. With the fall of France in 1940, the island became untenable by British arms and, for four long years, was enclosed in a loop of enemy steel. And yet, in the thunderstorm of the war, the ancient verities remained- and Valentine Morland, history don, bird-watcher and officer of no fixed military occupation set out by submarine for Armorel. In the darkest days of battle, his purpose was to accomplish something more important to peace than to war. This book tells how that purpose was achieved. Jerrard Tickell’s prose, always surging and buoyant, swings to the Channel breakers.
