I think what happened during the occupation of the Channel Islands shows what would have happened if Britain would have been conquered: some collaborated, some resisted and most people tried to get on with their lives, exactly what happened in occupied Europe.I suppose it's called rolling with the times. If the Germans had arrived in the UK, I guess much of the same would have happened here too, regardless of what that drunk Churchill said.
It's not something I'm proud of, but the fact is that both my parents and all my grandparents were collaborators [...]
Of course, in hindsight things look different than when you're in it. In 1940 few people expected that the Nazi's would be beaten eventually.
