Since visiting both Guernsey and Jersey I’ve been looking for books about the Channel Islands, a small group of islands between England and France. What I found was a large number of books about mostra'n més the Channel Islands’ role in World War II, and not so much about the islands themselves or other periods of history. But if you look hard enough you’ll find plenty of books to read before you visit the Channel Islands…

Note that some of the titles listed are out of print, but should be available from libraries.
