British collaboration with Germans following the occupation of the Channel Islands was similar in some respects to that of the French. This is a little known tidbit of history overlooked by those who speak condesendingly of the behavior of others, while extolling the British virtues.

When apologists ask, "What could we have done"?, nothing more would have been required than a simple statement of "No." Years ago, I worked in a clerical position at the UK desk of the United States State Department.
