    Overview

    Summary
    My thesis is that the extraordinarily heavy occupation and fortification of the British Channel Islands by German forces, during the Second World War, proved to be a strategic error. The number of troops necessary to defend the Islands and the amount of fortification was more than was required, when their size and importance is considered. Enormous quantities of weapons, building supplies, equipment, and manpower went into the construction of the Island defenses. After the battle of Britain had decided that the invasion of Great Britain was not to be, the importance of the Channel Islands was greatly diminished. In the end, Hitler's obsession with occupying British soil was to cost the German army dearly in the later stages of the war.
