German soldiers assigned to guard the small Sark Island Canal described it as a “little piece of paradise” and, because it has never bombed by the RAF, the best anti-aircraft shelter in all of Europe.But paradise for them came to a bloody end in October 1942, when a small group of British Commandos attacked the island, capturing a German soldier and killing several others.Basalt of the operation would have been a reference in history, but for Hitler’s reaction, who believed that the British soldiers executed several Germans who had already surrendered and whose hands were tied to each other.Days after the raid, he ordered the sadly famous “Commando”, a sentence of death for these allied commandos who fell into the hands of the Germans.Drawing on numerous archival research and interviews with survivors of the time, Eric Lee wrote the final account of the raid, placing it in the context of the British occupation of land during the war.
